Checked a spot this afternoon. Found decent amount. All were pretty dry from wind and lack of rain. Only a couple large ones. They were all on the decline picked what I could find. Hopefully we get some rain this weekend and it warms back up next week. Maybe we can finish out the year with a decent flush in May 🤞🏻

Found a few more on Saturday in northern Balto Co, Today, only 2 in northern Balto .Co. before the rain. What is everyone thinking about the rain? I am out of spots to check. Go back and check spots I have picked in case there is a new flush? Keep checking spots that have been empty so far (either never came up or were picked clean before I got there)? Or do you think they are done in central MD?

@snowranger if I were you it never hurts to recheck areas for some late risers. But I would definitely check areas where you think they haven’t came up yet. I have found a few way later than usual this year. Seems kinda harder to predict this year imo best to get out as much as possible and see what you find. Good luck to you and congrats on your finds!

Thanks for the advice Kbshroom! Those buggers are tough to figure out! The two I found yesterday were a mile apart with barren big poplars in between that usually produce. Maybe they popped last week and someone beat me to them! I think I will go back to my go to spot in a few days and see if the rain pushes some more up. Good luck to all!

Still trying to figure this year out. Today was the first I've been out in awhile. Life happens... I went to one of my late spots hoping to find a few and I did.. Most were very fresh so I ventured to a spot I had been to last week with a friend but only had a short time to look and found zero then. Today was a little better and most were in good shape. I first thought I would need to find them in the deep shade but I found none there and the ones I did find were in the open...Who knows what's going on but I still think there is hope. I don't know how much the weather coming will help but if you can get out safely and take a look ....... Happy Mothers Day too....

I found more yesterday than I have yet at one time (which was only 7) Some disintegrated and were water logged. Still better then not finding them. I know after last night's rain the ones I found would not hold up. However, maybe when the sun comes back out we will see an explosion! 🤞

@pollackeee very nice finds hopefully they keep coming. @redfred glad to hear you were able to get out and find a pile. Been finding a few here and there myself but seems to be slowing down for me at most spots. Went out in the rain this afternoon to check one of the last spots I find them. Got lucky picked a few good size ones. Left a bunch of smaller poplar mushrooms. Seem to be just starting there 🤞🏻 Hoping the rain gets more popping up and doesn’t wash all the ones that are up already. Good luck to all keep on hunting!
