found lots of chanterelles already last week, same place as last year.

East or west of the crest? I'm seeing very little here on the east side. Too dry. Got a couple meals worth of white chanterelles, but that's all. Pray for rain.

This state is quite varied. This year we got a mess of King Boletes in the Blues the last week of May! I will find them on the west side (Glacier Peak and the Sawtooths the last week of August.
Location, weather patterns, elevation, forest type, snow melt out timing, are just some variables that cause a "mushroomer" to always be on the lookout.

The morels are going crazy on the eastside.  A burned area at about 3,500 ft gave me all I could handle in just over an hour.

Found about 12 pounds of spring king boletes today on the eastside.  They were at 3,400 feet on a south facing slope with cedar, grand fir, and hemlock.  Almost all were still in the button stage with no maggots.  Yellow coral fungus was also fruiting like crazy.  I was only intending to go on a simple hike but I got distracted.

Oysters or Angel Wings. I'm never quite sure which is which but they're both edible so it doesn't matter too much. They look a little old and may have some bugs in them but hey, a little protein never hurts.

Morels in August?!

Two days ago I went hiking in Pend Oreille County, in the Colville NF.  I was mainly interested in putting in some mileage, but I brought a couple containers in case I came across some huckleberries.  Instead I found some morels in a section of forest that burned in the Kaniksu Complex fire last year.  They were the blonde variety, and huge.  Some were too far gone, but many were still good.  It took me very little time to get a gallon.

I was surprised, but it was at just under 6,000 feet on a north facing slope, and the periods of cool weather this summer probably helped a lot.  I saw a great quantity of other mushrooms on the hike in, most were gilled mushrooms I couldn't identify.  Pretty excited about the prospects for fall mushroom season in the Inland NW.

I found about a pound of Chanterelles on the Windward Olympics this last weekend. Just letting everyone know that they are out there for the picking.

Nope.  I'm going up for a mushroom hunt tomorrow (around the Salmo Priest wilderness area).  Not looking for matsutakes really, but I'll give a general fungus report when I get back.

Has anyone found any chanterelles in the cascades or lowlands yet?  Seems like it should be around the corner.

This might not be relevant for most of the members of the forum, but I thought I'd throw it out there.  I spent the weekend in and around the Salmo-Priest Wilderness area.  I know some people have picked chanterelles in the area, but I did not see a single one.

Notable mushrooms that I found at 2,600 feet in an old growth mainly hemlock/cedar forest (some white pines and western larch) with lots of moss and rotten wood: admirable boletes, 2 king boletes (in great shape), a bears head fungus, enormous quantities of slippery jacks and tamarack jacks, many, many random milk caps and russulas and other gilled mushrooms.  I picked the kings and the bears head, left everything else.

At 5,500 feet in shady draws with englemann spruce/sub alpine fir: hedgehogs (about half were done in by mold), and many random russulas and milk caps.  I kept the fresher hedgehogs.
