I thought I'd open a thread for Lancaster. If there is one already sorry for the repeat.
Anyway, if you want to post comments pictures or condition updates for county feel free. I'm super excited for this season!!

Found a handful of long necks this evening. Most had dried up caps. Not sure if we need more rain? Plenty of Ramps out there though.

4th trip out yesterday to a new spot on SGL. Nice spots with creek bed and forested areas, lots of skunk cabbage, ramps, may apples but again not 1 morel. 4th trip getting skunked. Surprised to say the least but nothing in Eastern Lancaster county so far for me. Probably put in 10 hours so far this year with no morels. Bad start compared to last year but staying hopeful.

I was in northern Lancaster co yesterday morning in a spot that looked very promising but didn't find any... it's raining steady now, im thinking tomorrow should be good?! I'd love to tag along with someone that knows what they are doing whether it be at one of my spots or a new spot..

Going to try to find an hour or two to head out to a new promising area today. Don't have my hopes up too much though as so far all 4 trips have netted zero morels. I'll take a few pheasant backs at this point. Morel season 2017 for this guy has been poor and frustrating. Hoping this rain helps. Good luck if you go. I'm in NE Lancaster as well.

Well I got out for a few hours but only found 7. Better than nothing but slow.

Been finding the few I have on State Forest areas. I did find one today on an SGL in Lancaster that's 2 minutes from my home while I was on lunch break but it's been really scattered with no flushes yet this year. I've tried apple trees, creek bottoms, hard woods etc and the vast majority were found under one young elm on state forest land. Odd year for me so far. The time is right just gotta find those elms I guess. Last year I found them under poplars, Ash, oak, apple and walnut. Not this year. Good luck if you go and let us know how you make out.

Went out Sunday evening and ran into a decent patch of blacks. 16 all within in 6x6 area. Thats the biggest stand I've ever come across here in Lancaster Co. Usually I find 5 or 6 then have to move on. Im still dreaming of those LARGE stands I see pictures of. All in all Im happy with what Im finding this year.

I think you'll have a pretty good chance they'll still be up. The ones I found were probably 10 days old. Had good luck under big old Poplar trees.
