What: Morel Mushroom Hunt
Location: Madison County, Nebraska along the Elkhorn River.
Conditions: Sunny and warm, 82 degrees.
Report: If yesterday was slow, today was slower. Here is yesterday’s morel mushroom report in case you missed it. I was hoping that things improved enough to matter yesterday with the warmer temps (it got close to 80 yesterday). Ground temperatures must be just a little cold yet. Hiked some proven ground for 2+ hours and did not find a single morel mushroom. Weather was nice though and it was good to get out for a hike this morning before it got too warm. I am going to hold off on looking tomorrow as I think we are a few days away yet. Ill get back to it on Monday down south a little further. There seem to be some good reports coming out of the Omaha, NE area and I have access to some good areas down that way that need some attention. Happy hunting and check back for the latest morel mushroom report. The staff at RYG will be out almost daily over the next few weeks.
Here are a few pictures of what I look for in the woods when mushroom hunting. These trees will produce nicely this year once our temperatures get right. We hope you enjoyed our report. We would love to hear from you and how your season is going!
