September 27, 2018

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Gold Rush, a special stocking of golden rainbow trout, will return in 2019 with more fish and locations, according to West Virginia Division of Natural Resources Director Stephen McDaniel.

Gold Rush will return the week of April 1-6, 2019 and include stockings and events at more than 55 lakes and streams across the state, including 12 state parks. That week, DNR personnel will stock only golden rainbow trout in designated lakes and streams. To ensure families have plenty of opportunities to participate in the event, DNR is planning a big release on Saturday, April 6, 2019, the last day of the event. FULL STORY
