PINEDALE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is investigating reports from anglers who say they found sick or dead brown trout in the New Fork River south of Pinedale.

Pinedale fish managers believe it is due to a common fungal infection. Infected fish have patches of a cotton-like growth on their skin and often are lethargic.

Wildlife officials say there is no way to treat fish populations in a stream or river.

They say the New Fork River should still have a healthy brown trout population next spring.
