A place for morel talk. Happy Hunting!
Im in cambria county. How far out do you predict theyll be for me? We.ve had plenty of snow, rain, and now warm weather. Im gonna walk a few spots today to see whats comin up. Im sure my ramp spots are heating up too.80 degrees here today with 75+ forecasted for the next 5 days. A 30% chance of rain on Friday and 40% on Sunday. We sooooo need it. May be travelin' to the northern part of the state this year . . .
I was up in Jefferson County for Easter; leeks/ramps are up and the ruby-throated hummingbird has been spotted near Pittsburgh and already north of I-80. I find a direct correlation between their migration and finding morels. I have heard of several reports in both Greene and Indiana counties for blacks. They are definitely starting but I would wait for some rain to give them some growth . . . not worth damaging what you can't see.Im in cambria county. How far out do you predict theyll be for me?

Glad to see that you all made through the winter. I think its going to be a while in my area too. Well I got a little trout fishing to do before I get serious about morel hunting anyway. Last year they cancelled the trout tournaments that I get in, so there was no conflict with the morels starting early. This year should be good timing. I saw a couple of trout close to the size of that one you caught last year trahn, but didn't manage to hook on to any.
Beagle... “trout tourneys”? Are they fly fishing tourneys?
I just started straight line nymphing ( Euro style etc) ... made a world of difference in success. Not quite ready for a tourney but certainly sounds interesting.
Sorry... perhaps for a new thread.
