Nice looking mushrooms for this time of year. I found a big handful - eight or ten nice ones on my last time out. Delicious for sure but not really worth the time and cost spent getting them, for me anyway.

Good work lobo!! Awesome pics. Glad you finally had a chance to get out and do what you love. I've been so busy roofing and with construction I haven't been able to break away to the woods. Soon though. Hope all is well.

Well hello all - Went out on the hunt for Lobsters like I said but didn't find any the first time. Maybe too dry or not the right elevation where I was. On my second outing last weekend I found just 8 but they were nice ones. Found very few other shrooms while out....Rain needed badly...

Montanamorel; I believe that my picking permit for that area expires September 30th, new flushes are always loads of fun. (longer post on the other board) ……. ........ Matsiman, I shall attempt sending some recent photographs for posting. Mountain hucks are ‘ON’ in select areas, yum…. dwarf hucks seem to be mostly done where I have been traveling.

Hey there ya'll! I volunteered at the south sound mushroom clubs' booth yesterday for the Mushroom festival in Olympia, Wa. Had a blast! The festival was cool too. Anywho, there were several baskets of fresh lobsters and chanterelles that were on display and for sale at the festival. Word is, they are getting them up around shelton towards the beach. Full buckets!

When we get that pineapple express effect all is well in the mushroom forests of Or. & Wa. Pines, Chanty's, Boletes, etc. It's the best kind normal fall weather pattern we get and this is the year for it. A dry July for most of Or & Wa is the proof, in part. Everybody chill for just one more month give or take. When the August rains start it's gonna be one of those years you'll see!

Or maybe someone just loves my user name so much they decided to steal it. Or they are so impressed by me they wanted to pretend they are me? No idea. I should be ranting in the MM board but my stalker is here. Whatever. I was thinking of changing by name anyways. And I have no problem finding Lobsters. (0)

Thanks for the help on the Lobsters I'm going out today to hunt around and will let the board know how I do. I'm wondering if maybe the matsi season will be a good one and if so maybe prices will be up for the commercials as the Japanese stock market keeps going higher and higher giving them more benefit to investments. Althought the Yen has gone down too.....so?

Has anyone seen that video where the mushroom guru - you know who- cooks and eats those deadly Amanitas? I know scary huh?!! But the video clearly shows they are boiled in water for a certain amount of time, drained, and boiled again, then drained again. Interesting for sure but I DO NOT recommend this to anyone so use your own head if you think you want to try it. I have heard of this method for cooking false morels too, another technique I'm too timid to try and don't recommend either but it is interesting none the less. I stick to the known-to-be- safe mushrooms.

Personally, I never go looking for lobsters before late august and that's only if we have had some good rains. Remember Russulas are the origin of lobsters and water loving mushrooms. OH and lactarius sometimes I guess

Hey omnath without knowing were you are its hard to say but its awful hot anywhere in Or, and Wa. What we would need for a good lobster pop is rain, then warming, then more rain, then warming. kinda a normal summer type rain, not extreme swings from very wet to very hot imo. Later in like August and sept the lobsters are easier to find. Good luck

Does anyone have a lead they can give me on where I can find Lobster mushrooms this time of year? I don't mean specific places of course just a general idea, I've eaten them and think they're great but don't know where I can find them. Same general type of areas as Chantrelles/Hedgehogs? West side of the Cascades is probably best?

I was watching an episode of the current edition of Master Chef last nite and about halfway through the show they had an elimination challenge that featured wild mushrooms. Black Trumpets and OREGON HEDGEHOGS!. The  judge pointed out how gourmet and delicious the hedgehods were. I was proud! Our local Northwest food strikes again!

checking in from the Red R. Dist. Prices high, morels rather sparse and scattered. I've been hard-pressed to average a hundred bucks.Thanks for the Magruder info,Lobo,from back in June.Part of the reason I'm home is to reshoe and tune the PU for an anticipated move thru said corridor when Maguire burn tapers off.With only about a thousand foot elev. variance it could happen pretty quickly when it does.Seemed to be the way with the conica flush.So I'll be back up there on the B'root crest then I guess,trying to get my money's worth from SalmonChallis season permit.Good luck everyone;"they can hide,but they can't run"

Heat wave across in the mid-west and east coast and south is just frying the mushrooms. First tons of rain there , then sudden and extreme heat. Chanterelles in the south were happening in commercial amounts up until a few days ago and now are they just burning up/rotting almost overnite. Everybody out here from BC to Norcal who cares better start doing the rain dance, praying to your god, or whatever you think will work. The worst thing we could have would be a repeat of last fall. I await the august rains as theres another hot spell coming for us out here. No point wasting time and money looking now.

True statement.. Shroomgirl The first season I ever did Matsis Were Good times, matter of fact.. I would have gave ALL my shrooms to the guy that showed me around ,Just for the venture and fun of being out there... If he wasnt so busy trying to get me loss and off track,. (why he showed me at all is a mystery) Yet I Love the outdoors and theres not much out in "THE REAL WORLD" or any closer to my heart and home as a day running wild in the woods ....and I dont think I ever really been loss (just at peace) in them woods Loooking forward to full buckets and new trails this fall.......

Mad Morel says there's chantrelles where he is on east slope of the Cascades. The weather pattern is weird this year, even as far back as this spring, as it seems to have brought plenty of rain, albeit a little late in the main burns for morels BUT it will add to the accumulated amount for the fall season for sure. I'm looking foreward to an awesome fall season in Or too!

TK............Not to be rude here............but not all of us pick just for money. A good portion of us pick for the pleasure of being in the forest, exercise, and of course having a bounty of 'shrooms to take home and eat!

I meant there probably wont be a season down there, besides why grub around for a few mushrooms and not even make expenses when you can go north like up Wa way, and make the buckets! I'm talking about chants and lobbies here, I don't pick or care about matsi's anymore since they have so little value.

Jack - The best source for weather is the Western Regional Climate Center. If you check that out you'll see it doesn't look at all good for the southern coastal areas of Oregon that have actually been in long term drought for some time now. I go north for the chanties and lobsta's. Lincoln city to Astoria.....Maybe even Wa this year as they have had tons of rain there.

If you are interested in giving your input in this matter,here are more details and who to get in touch with to give your opinion. This is from a consultant with Avison Management Services Ltd. emailing on behalf of Spectra Energy. Spectra Energy has proposed a sweet natural gas pipeline with 50 m right of way. The pipeline will run west from Hudson Hope to the Pacific coast north of Prince Rupert. She will be pleased to send you draft documents of the proposed route. In preparation of the Environmental Assessment process Avison Management Services has been contracted to complete a forest tenure review for this proposed project. One aspect of this review is to identify non-timber forest product producers/harvesters in order to determine what affect this project would have on their livelihoods. Sincerely, Karen Scheffers Karen.scheff@gmail.com Avison Management Services, 220 East Steward Street Phone: 1 250 567 2111 P.O. Box 774, Vanderhoof, B. C. V0J 3A0

I am sending this message out to all Canadian Pickers, and Buyers who are interested. Avison Management contacted me because there are preparing for an environmental assessment of a proposed pipeline for Spectra Energy. They want input from folks who harvest non-timber forest products to understand how the pipeline would affect them. I am hoping you can contact them to provide your input and pass this letter along to anyone else you know who has a wild harvest business. Thanks Dan

Wild side. That clay bank must have failed. The mt. glen is mostly steep rock. It's an hour from Cannal Flats on a maze of back roads. You might get a bucket full if no one beats you there. It is not a commercial pick. The gas companies should give out maps to these type of fires.
