Anyone still finding in northern lower?
Yes I did pick fresh morels 6-3, 4, and yesterday the 5th. Emmet county. It is definitely a down year for the whites but they are out there. I will be going again this weekend June 11. Should be some to pick.

We received rain last night. A little over a half inch. Didn't get much rain last week. It has not been ideal weather for morels. One week cold and the next week we are reaching near record highs. The
poor mushrooms don't have a chance. But that is the ball game. Have to make due with what you get. The reason there is a mix of fresh ones versus not so fresh ones is because the early morels on
south and east facing slopes had to withstand three days of 85-90 degree heat. Those on north and west slopes or very shady areas near the lake were just coming up during the heat and now it is cool while they live out there short life. So there are very nice morels out there but you have to really spend time to find them.

Anyone out there looking for/finding golden oysters? My mushroom mentor turned me onto them last year. He said just go check your morel spots they grow on the dead elms. The great thing about them is that they’ll keep fruiting most of the summer. So if your find some he told me to go back every 10-14 days. They have a short shelf life on the stump so you have to stay on it to get them fresh. He said they’re in his top 5 favorites. The top photo is a fresh pod I found Tuesday, they other two are that same pod from this morning, they mature quickly

I haven't found any golden oysters in the southern part of the state. I'm on the Michiana line and always find other oysters but have never seen the golden ones.
