Joshua’s Pole Creek Stash

No Comments

From Joshua:

I had some pictures to share with the club if you would like. I have attached several images, feel free to use any you would like. All the morels shown were harvested near pole creek in the fore-mentioned areas on the edges of the burn. It was a fantastic weekend, all together we came out with roughly eight pounds after several outings. There were some amazing hotspots that yielded up to 15-20 mushrooms per grouping, and there one hill that produced some pole creek giants. Hope you enjoy the pics and happy hunting.

Bunches of boletes for Clair

1 Comment

Once again, eagle-eyed Clair shares his spring bounty photos with us.  Just a little bait to get out and hunt.  Be sure to read Christopher’s comment in another post.  We did find a few baby boletes on Monday on Conklin Rd, toward Sunriver, so they should be popping soon.  We are headed up to the Ochocos for this weekend and will let you know how we do. Please submit posts to brag about your finds to get us jealous and jazzed.  

Our first morels for 2014

No Comments

Ron and I went up to Pole Creek Fire area near Whychus creek and looked hard through the edges of the burn.  We finally started to find them, but they were mainly in one or two spots with nothing much outside of these hotspots.  We netted 1 1/2 pounds of morels. Dirty work, but we will enjoy every bite. Notice that good boy Ron cut them in half as required, well except for some of mine! 

Spring kings spring up!

Went out looking for morels today, but found these kings instead. Only saw one morel, and didn’t pick it. I was at lower elevations in the Metolius, and on Green Ridge. It’s already dryer than I had expected.

More Morel finds


This is happy Christopher with his first little batch of morels this spring.  He didn’t pass up the chewy, tasty miner’s lettuce he found near the Pole Creek burn with his two children. Chris says that he found them mostly in one spot after looking and looking and looking – the last half hour in about one acre area in the lowest parts of the burn.    Ron and I went out for a couple hours today, too, but found nothing to eat.  Several Tricholoma vernaticum and eaten up Ramaria let us know the season is starting, but little else showed up at 4500-5000 ft.  I think it may be a little early for where we were looking and we certainly need some rain!

How have you done out there?

Clair’s latest morel post


Picked these this afternoon near the Pole Cr. burn; mainly found under manzanita at the edge of the burn. Not much showing in the burn itself. These are nice and fresh, and I didn’t see any old morels. It’s still early, so we should be seeing more in the future. A shot of rain would help
