CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - An organizer of the recent Freshwater Spearfishing Nationals on Keyhole Reservoir near Gillette has been charged with wasting game fish after more than 350 crappie were found dumped in a field.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/JgW1zu ) 25-year-old Gillette angler Weston Rosenau called the Wyoming Game and Fish Department after wardens released a notice to the public for information about the fish, which were found June 6.

Rosenau says the wasting of the fish was an accident.

After 44 anglers finished the first day of the tournament June 5, he says he and others divided the fish into piles to be filleted.

Rosenau says “everything was sorted into buckets . and one of the buckets got missed, and we didn’t realize it until the next day.”

He decided to dump the fish because they weren’t salvageable.
