L.J. Probst caught six golden trout of a very rare species on Monday at Crystal Lake in the Big Horns. It is understood there are only two lakes in the United States that are stocked with this species, which is entirely different from the California golden trout. Sportsmen consider it a great feat to catch these fish, since they are very wary and only take bait. It is said they will not rise to artificial tackle in any season. The largest fish of the six weighed about three pounds.

A Gillette police sergeant has resigned the force while under internal investigation for possible violation of the department rules and regulations. Sgt. Don Waba resigned the force Friday. Lt. Jeff Pfau stressed that it was not a criminal investigation, but a “personal” matter. The alleged violation concerned “use of threatening and insulating language, general deportment, and conduct to be creditable to the department,” according to Pfau. Pfau said there would be no replacement of the sergeant until Chief Don Schneider returns from vacation next week. Waba, who served as president of the Campbell County Peace Officer’s Association, had been with the department less than a year.
