The 2018 Morel season has left us! The first sighting of the season was reported in the early part of March and the last was reported in June. All in all it was a good season for most morel hunters even with the odd spring weather which did create havoc for a lot of folks. The Great Morel’s recap in detail of the 2018 Morel season can be found here – 2018 summary of the various regions. The Great Morel would like to thank each and everyone of you who have contributed this season to help make the sightings maps the place to report! May everyone have wonderful off-season and don’t forget to visit The Morel Store for those special occasions and gift ideas for the Shroomer in your life!

Not much rain, doesn’t help the black morels. Looked for over 3 hours extensively on Thursday 5/24 and could only find false morels everywhere I went. After a rainfall there could be major growth coming soon.
|54173 Suamico, WI 5/25
Much dryer spring early on, not much rain to help out the black morels. White morels should be popping up after this weekend’s rain.

We purchased our house last year that has 11 acres of woods. I tried to search last year but the land was neglected for many years and the leaves and debris made it impossible to see anything. We cleaned up quite a bit of it and control burned the excess leaves last summer. This evening my husband and I decided to go for a walk in the woods to see how our fern gully was looking and as I was walking I caught a glimpse of something and went over to see what was coming up and to my surprise it was a bunch of morels!

|54630 Galesville, WI 5/24
This season has been very late, I'm normally done looking by now. I believe the mushrooms should be showing up on the North side now. Almost everything I have found up to Tuesday has been on the top and South facing. Last week I found a mixture of Grays and blondes, but mostly grays.
|51106 Sioux City, IA 5/23
58 yellows! All good sized and most fresh... Most were found with decent shade, moist soil, and at the top slopes of hills near a lake. None were found around excessive plant growth on the ground. May 18th after a good few days of rain and one day of cool temps in the mid 50s.
|49663 Manton, MI 5/23
one small one big yellow
|53809 Fennimore, WI 5/23
Found many dried up and past picking yellows this morning on the southeastern slope. but found a pound of fresh yellows on a north side damp ditch line. Season is almost over here. I had a good season of almost 20 pounds found.
