Maybe Wednesday, they're saying now. We didn't get enough last night (Sat/Sun) to hardly dampen the surface, just 1/10th of an inch. I was out again on Sunday and saw no change.

First finds of 2021!!! IT IS ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Over all found a dozen in my early reliable spot. Loved the rain we got yesterday. Just perfect. View attachment 37056
Just a small reply, these were found in a rather sunny area that has sun on it all day in newer growth from a clear cut about 7 yrs ago. Ground is warm enough there. This spot is always the first spot I find them in and it turns on about 4-5 days later everywhere else. This is the first official find of 2021 and all the other posts from the other states are fakes..lol!!! Dam needed that rain a week ago!!

Nice find! Jealous that you got rain, glad that you found some of, if not the, first. Gives me hope to keep looking -- I did see a new toadstool that sprang up today. 😉

I drove up to Lake Whitney (2 hours) yesterday but no luck. I just don't know what wooded areas I am allowed to be on so I went to the state park. There are only 2 small hiking trails so? I go off the trail but still nothing. It was a fun day anyway but yaknow. I am from the midwest and used to finding loads but here in TX IDK... Where I live in Williamson County there are tons of hiking trails but I know I need to go north a bit. There are some army corps lands around lake Whitney but they seems to be designated for hunting. I am looking for advice, wooded areas that I can go on without getting in too much trouble! Please and TY :)

Sorry, been quite for the past week but Im still finding them. Less and less each day as we get away from the rain we had last week. Got rain planned for the next few days so I expect to get another flush of them again. Probably over all found about 15lbs so far.
