On this day: May 20, 1959

Dale Meeks, 10, of 2312 Pullen in Richland tangled with something when he hooked a nearly six-foot-long sturgeon in the Columbia River near Paterson. He was using an eel for bait and a 50-pound test line. Young Meeks needed some help from his father, Harold, and his uncle, Bill McCarthy to get it ashore.
