Morel Mushroom Sightings – Maps

The Great Morel is often asked “is it time yet?” or “are there morel sightings in my neck of the woods?

The morel sighting maps are a great way to help each other out a little bit. They have always been a favorite and a good resource on when one might begin their foraging adventure. Below is the new and improved interactive Sightings Map which we began using in 2017. There are also seven years of the old fashioned Historical Sightings Maps below too.

If you would like to submit a sighting, the guidelines are pretty simple…Zip, City, State and date found. If you want to add any additional information such as county, weather, or an image that is fine. Sightings will be posted daily during prime morel season.

2018 Morel Sightings Map

The 2018 Morel season is slowly winding down!  The first sighting of the season was reported in the early part of March and it is now slowed down for most regions in the US!  All in all it was a good season for most morel hunters even with the odd spring weather. The Great Morel will post a season summary for all the regions near the end of June just to bring everyone up to speed.  Currently it is quiet and the morels have made their migration into the northern part of North America.  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 hit the shop for those special occastions and gift ideas for the Shroomer oin you life!

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 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.

2017 Morel Sightings Map

The morel sightings reports were really good for most in the 2017 season…from the early southern morel hunters to the northern parts of the US. Reports from the northern Midwest States were good with the weather seeming to cooperate for most people.  As the great morel made its annual migration, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ontario and those way up north were saying “its all good” too. New York was blessed with a good year as well. For most in  PA, OH, IN, IL, and Iowa it was pretty much a better than average year. The Pacific Northwest continued to have an above average year too. 2017 for most may be one of the best overall years many have seen in some time with Mother Nature lending her cooperation along the way.

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 most recent sightings along with images and notes if they were sent – there is a “more pages” button at the bottom of this table.
