I just found out about these permits. The Shasta Lake District never had them until now; I traveled all through the Carr Fire area yesterday and hiked all over. We saw nothing from 2000 to 5000 ft. except at Clear Creek Campground which is @ 3600 ft. Even there we only found 6 Morels. There are rumors coming out of that area of good picking but I wasn't able to find it! Good Luck out there. Happy Shroomin'.....
