When will the first morel be found?

When will it be? We have found them on April 1st before but I don't think that will be the case this year with the lower temps this week. I'm gonna say second week of April.

unfortunatly with this colder weather it wont be as early last year. I would say 2nd week in april is safe bet in southern part of state pending some warmer weather.

Found 5 small morels this morning in Mifflin County.

The journey is more important than the purpose.

My 1 buddy asked me what I was doing this saturday, I told him "Doing some morel hunting" He laughed and told me that there is not going to be any morels in the central PA area till end of next week or the week after...I made the comment that many have been saying on different sites that they are finding morels (On Facebook's morel site, there is pictures and reports of morels found last week in northern Ohio) He would say your Mifflin County find is a Internet lie, all made up to get many wondering around for nothing.....he keeps saying we need 70 degree days for atleast a week and night time temps in the very high 50s and mid 60s! How do you get thru to thick headed folks that it really doesn't depend on the temps the feel but the temps the ground feels by way of south facing mountain sides and warm ups of other ground areas due to underground heat sources???

Im NOT MISSING my chance this year like I've done in years past, always left others tell me it was to early and I ended up NOT getting a chance to find morels to eat!!
