West Virginia DNR Announces Winners of “Gold Rush”

SOUTH CHARLESTON, WV – The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (WVDNR) has announced the winners of this year’s Gold Rush Giveaway.

The Gold Rush event included two ways to win giveaway prizes. Numbered tags were placed on 100 stocked golden trout. Anglers who caught a trout with a numbered tag could complete the submission form online at Anglers who didn’t reel in a tagged golden rainbow trout still had opportunities to enter a giveaway by signing up to receive travel tips and information from the WVDNR.

“Gold Rush was a big success this year and I want to congratulate the winners of these great prizes,” said WVDNR Director Stephen McDaniel. “Thank you to everyone who got out there and cast their lines for golden rainbow trout. We look forward to providing more exciting opportunities to enjoy our state’s natural resources.”

One lucky angler won the grand prize of a three-night cabin stay at Blackwater Falls State Park. Other prizes include one-night cabin stays at various West Virginia state parks or forests, West Virginia State Parks gift cards and exclusive Gold Rush merchandise.

In total, there are 36 giveaway prizes. Winners will be contacted to confirm information and their prizes will be delivered via mail or email.
