Stray Casts will intelligently report and observe, hopefully with a touch of wit, on daily occurrences, reports and releases related to Chicago-area outdoors from bucks to bass to birds to bugs

Morel of the Week: Coming, eventually

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

No, no one sent in a morel of the week, yet.

In fact, the first sighting reported on morelmushroomhunting.com was only in Knoxville, Tenn. on March 1.

We are weeks away, especially here in northern Illinois.

However, last week, while discussing fishing with Jason Johns, a guide for Todd Gessner Outdoors, he mentioned, off-handedly, he was expecting a banner spring in southern Illinois for morels because the winter and spring so far.

It excites me.

BTW, when morels start popping, I will be running MOTW photos on Sundays on the outdoors page of the Sun-Times.

E-mail those to straycasts@sbcglobal.net.
