Not the year

It appears that this is not the year for morels. This morning Willard and I took a drive and checked a few of our favorite spots and nearly came up with a blank. About a dozen small yellows and four blacks were all that we could find. Other folks that I’ve talked to have not done much either and it’s getting late in the season. Willard said it right; we found more wood ticks that mushrooms.

There is still some fish in the river. Reports are mixed with some bait fishermen doing well; others not so good. Sunday afternoon, in 2-1/2 hours I caught three nice walleyes pulling crank baits. With four other boats in the area, I only saw one fish caught, but that was mid-afternoon. Bait fishing is usually better toward evening. And there are the mosquitoes; some were even out in the middle of the river and they are BIG.
