'Preview' of 1st Annual Trout & Morel Hunt in NE IA
Today, a friend and I spend a few hours in woods in Rock Island county. We came away with 8 small morels. This year, it didn't prove foolish to hunt for the fungi on April Fools Day. My mom is getting a tasty addition to today's birthday celebration!
Whether we hunt for morels at home and transport them or -better yet- if we hunt and land trout and morels in NE Iowa, I'm looking forward to a great weekend in the Driftless Area. Sometime between mid-April and mid-May a four-some will meet. Tents will be pitched, water waded, & the woods enjoyed. One can't quite predict when peak morel season will occur, but we hope to be part of it. If not, I'm certain we will enjoy a few of those 365 days/year of open trout season in NE Iowa.
