I found them today March 21st. The first day of Spring I believe. The report is featured in the Morels 2018 tab. Good hunting! By the way fly fished a few runs today. The river flow is still low. No winter steelhead hooked. Just one nice Rogue River cutthroat trout who couldn’t resist a Beadhead G.R. Hare’s Ear Nymph. The March Brown hatch was on.
Happy to find this first morel after checking another spot, fly fishing two holes and no results. Then this!
Yes, they are starting to pop in the high Cascade Mountains. Here’s the first four black morels that I found along an old logging road.
The first of the mountain black morels are found on May 11, 2017. Let the treks into the high Cascades begin. To see more see the Morels 2017 page:
Neil with a yummy find.
Morels are mysterious little fellow. They can be found in usual haunts. On this day we discovered morels coming up in different and unexpected locations like this little grass clearing.
We found this lone morel along a deer trail under Oregon ash trees.
Morels 2017 tab updated with more photos from the Easter Sunday morel foray. Quite a successful hunt, with the first of the nice wild asparagus found.
