2018 Sightings Map

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!

If you have issues with the latest sightings markers, try un-checking a month in the bottom left corner of the map and then rechecking the box next to the month. It should refresh correctly.


There are plenty of features on the new interactive map – zoom, filter by month, full screen and more. Below the map you can find a table listing of the 20 most recent sightings along with images and notes if they were sent – there is a “more pages” button at the bottom of this table.

was pleasantly surprised when I found these. They are small and a bit dried out, found under dead elm tree, flat area with violets grasses and dandelions.

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.

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.
Found a total of around a couple dozen black morels in our spots, not as plentiful as last year.
Pheasantbacks are already up, and should be picked as soon as possible. The younger the better, and they get too tough when they’re old.

Morel at home:   We've had a couple of hot, mid-80's days after a week of cold and damp. Found this one while mowing the yard. Just out of the yard in a flower bed.
