After weeks of speculation, it's now confirmed. Trout's nightclub, the iconic Oildale honky-tonk on North Chester Avenue, is up for sale. Not only that, the hunt is on for the Trout's sign, which Thomas Rockwell, the longtime operator of the bar, said on Facebook recently he was repairing and refurbishing. One thing is sure: the sign is gone. The group that now owns the bar wants the sign back, and they're asking for help from locals who may have clues regarding its whereabouts.
