There are grays popping up in the Lawrence area. Found first ones 4/15. 1/2" rain last night should really get them going.

Found a dozen nice ones tonight. Seems like they just came up today - even in this cool weather. Had to be the rain last night that got them going.

Found a few in low lying brushy areas yesterday. Temps about right but seems too dry. Think a good rain would really get them going.

I checked my honey holes Saturday and all I came up with were 13 smalls. They were starting to dry out too. If it rains a little, and we get the temps, might find a few more, but the grass is starting to get pretty tall.

Yes, the grass is getting tall - sadly. There are areas where the grass doesn't matter and that's where we will have to focus. I plan to look tomorrow 4/25 and again over the weekend.

Very nice indeed!!!

I didn't get hardly any rain this week in my area, so I'm probably done shrooming until the chanterelles and the trumpets get going. Fingers crossed we'll have some summer rains!!!

I’ve been finding tons in the lawrence area. Despite the lack of rain they’re coming up pretty strong. The woods are growing up but I’m still finding mostly whites and some greys. Just started finding yellows today. I think there’s time left- perhaps a week?

Agree, they are still coming up. Found a bunch of yellows today myself. Bottom land in thick stuff. Ticks are bad!
I just tried permethrin on my clothing for the first time today- worked like a charm. Me and a buddy each pulled 10 pounds today. Great season so far!!

I still plan to look after the rains forecasted this week. May be one last opportunity to find some in 2019. Hate to give up as the season goes by so quickly each year.

Well, the woods are a soggy mess right now. Standing water in lots of areas and others are completely flooded. I checked three great spots and found a few in each place. They were bloated with water and covered in dirt- possibly from coming up through the mud or just from rain splatter. On the plus side, I really haven’t found much in the way of yellows this season, so it’s still possible that they start going nuts in the next few days/next week.

Not from Leavenworth but have hunted in that area. I'm around Lawrence. I might jump in a couple spots this afternoon and see what it looks like.
