Oregon hunters check in....
    #2045141 - 10/26/03 05:49 PM (14 years, 26 days ago)

Anyone had any luck finding any actives this season? Here in the portland area we haven't had any rain this past month. I have made a few trips to the coast and had no luck there either, except for some aminita and edibles. We could sure use some rain anytime soon. I would really like to find some cyans since it's too early for azurs. When we get a good dumping of rain do the cyans come up as much as the Seattle, Bellingham areas? Anyone have any idea where the closest place to hunt cyans is? I am thinking about making a trip up to Olympia this week hopefully I can locate something up there.

....praying for the rain.

It's rained here quite a few times in the past few weeks, actually. I've been sort of hunting everywhere I go, just scanning the land around me. I found some mushrooms that looked somewhat like semilceanta yesterday but they had all died and dried up, and those that hadn't were only pinning out of the ground. But on a positive note, the dried up ones were blue-grey. I'm going back to the same place when it rains.

As for cyans, that's what I'm looking for too. If they grow half as much here as they do around mjshroomer then we're in luck. Everywhere I've looked I've found nothing promising.

Happy Trails!

Here, it looks like Tuesday is our only hope:


10 day P-Town forecast


Or...do we need a good rain, where the sky basically shits it down?

I'm from bellingham and I've found a nice grip of cyans this season, but I was in oregon on the 19th and went to the coast. Had moderate success to the tune of 100 or so azures. They weren't in the well-known places, but with some perseverance and effort, you'll at least find the azurescens. I don't know about the state of cyans in oregon, but with the temps I've been seeing for portland, I'd say wait another 2-3 weeks and pray for some rain. I'd imagine they're just as prolific down there as they are up here, just slightly delayed. Good luck, happy hunting.

From the sound of the Seattle/Bellingham posts I'd say Portland area Cyans are just as prolific - those and Stunzii. I've not found any yet anywhere I've looked, and I have checked some spots that were pretty prolific. My guess is temperature. We're having September temps (if not late August) with these record highs in the 70s and such!
Rain + a week of temps at normal this time of year (mid-upper 50's for highs) and I bet the cyans will be out in force!

Side question - has anyone found a beayocistis (sp) in the Portland area? Maybe I am not looking in the right spots, but I'd like to find one some time to clone and potentially see if I can make a re-curring beaobed.

No azeurs in usual spots. I did find 3 but it took a lot of digging around in beachgrass. I didn't have the patience to continue - at the rate I found those I'd have taken all day to find 10 or so!

Loads of edibles around (burp) - got my biggest hall of chantrelles ever a while back. Found a load of Boletus Mirrabilus (sp) last weekend before the Oregon Mycology society show (which was a hit).

Matsutake are fruiting by the way - within 100 miles of Portland (that is ALL the hint I give for those gems). Amanita Verosa and Phollaides (I hate spelling) also is fruting. Good idea to find some of each and get a GOOD look at mushies NOT to eat (they are both rather good looking anyway).

Well this question is for more experienced hunters in the Portland area:

Would I be able to find cyanescens within the city limits, like in gardens and parks, or would I have to do a little driving? I say this because I'm within walking/bus distance of many city parks that have lots of trees, wood chips, etc. and my neighborhood is full of mulched gardens and such.

I have been seriously searching all the spots I found cyans last year and have only found 8-9. Most spots had nothing. I do not think someone else is beating me to all of them so I think they are just beginning to fruit here in Seattle. Unfortunately it is going to freeze this Thurs and Fri night, I only hope that does not hurt them.

It was so dry this summer I wonder if there will be much of a crop this year? The total edibles and pretty junk mushrooms are way down here now too. If we get a few more days of rain and not below freezing at night, I think we may get a big rush of everything, but there sure are a lot of variables that come into play.

I moved chips from fruiting areas at the end of the season to about 30 new good looking spots but have not found any cyans or mycelium at the places I tried to do a transplant. So don't know if it will work or if the year was soooooo dry this year that they could not get a good growth of mycelium over the summer. Any ideas?

I spent so much time driving to Oregon last year searching for azures with no success that I am beginning to wonder if you are all putting me on that they exist? Are those photos all created in "photoshop"? Please reassure me that my persistence will pay off eventually.

Not to give away my spots in Porltand, but I would say that within a short walk of the bus mall down town you should be able to find cyan's when they are fruiting (soon). Portland is full of parks and buildings have landscaping around them, lots of rhododenderons and bark dust and such. cyans seem to like it under rhodeys. By Tri-met on a good day you should be able to pick plenty of cyans. Look at a map of green spaces and parks. Keep your eyes open.
The temperature is supposed to drop drastically and a cold rain will be falling later this week, followed by clearing. Cyans aught to be up next week in droves in Porltand if the forcast is right!

Thanks Werecat! Great help, especially the rhododendron tip. But, for a newbie to hunting like myself, any other tips perchance?

Hmm. Here is a spot that I have never checked but seems to be a likely place to look as there are lots of rhodies and such around and different habitats - different ground covers, etc. Try the Rose Garden up in Washington park (not the Blazers arena though you could probably get weed there from the players).
I really should go check it out myself up there and probably will this Saturday. Maybe see you there.

I'm going to be trying a few parks in NE Portland as soon as we get a decent rain. They're all relatively small so I won't mention names.

"Try the Rose Garden up in Washington park (not the Blazers arena though you could probably get weed there from the players)."


I actually picked my first actives a few years back in this little patch of grass about a block away from the rose garden arena. We still could use alot more rain. I lucked out and found a patch of cyans near the coast. I went looking at the rose gardens about a month ago and didn't find anything. Is this cold weather going to effect anything? So far this season has really sucked for Oregon.

Hehe I am in the NE, I have also kept my eyes open in a few rather dirt/plant filled sections of nw, but I so far have not seen anything.

Well now. I did a bit of looking around yesterday and found nothing interesting. I think the rain has been sufficient though with the weird ass temperatures in the 80's as late as mid October it may have totally confused the mushies! I would think that after the frost(s) we'd get Cyans and Stunzii's once typicaly weather returned (whatever the heck "typical" is anymore - 2 weeks ago in the 80's, snowing last weekend!).
One of the biggest finds of Stunzii I have EVER had (and it was huge) was in the new land scaping of one of the discount shopping stores. Thousands of them - and a few galarinas just to make things intersting - fruited after a good frost and return to rain.
Keeping both eyes open 100% of the time as you walk or even ride the bus is the best thing to do. I have found Cyan's via Tri-met!

Yeah, it was snowing today! Not sticking, nor is it even snowing much at all, but still. I hope for a good rain, then I will go searching.

Hey everbody. I havent posted in a long time. But i am back and I have found cyans in washington park in the past. I have checked my usual spots, but i have found nothing yet this year. I hear the Astoria has been very short on the Azure's so far this year as well. Let me know if you all have any luck. PM me....

Edited by Gumby: You got a little to specific with that one, please review the rules to see what is acceptable.

Just out of curiousity, no one here with spots would be wiling to give up any if the reciever of said information was willing to adhere to any rules/guidelines, would they? Or is it against the rules?

I think I ran across quite the little patch today.... I have some picked for samples but I am unsure if my digital camera will be clear enough. They were pretty small and kind of shrunken it seems from the weather, as some seemed to have a semi flat top as opposed to the round top one might expect. However I was thinking the frost and the really cold weather could have shiveled them, as one of them I could see a small amount of water that had collected on it's top.

I will post some picsi n a bit though. They are really dark brown now, but they kind of started out that way. Right after I picked them if there was any blue or purpleish change, I think it would have been too hard for me to tell, although it is possible on one of the lighter spots of the mushie I saw a change of that hue, I could be wrong though, anyways, lemme get the pics...

Also, what are your tips for picking when they are within some bushy area along a rather busy road downtown, do you just go and pick them and then walk away, like a hit and run style or what? Would it seem odd or suspicious for you to be kind of digging around in the plants next to the road?

I also walked down along the grass/trees near the river from burnside to that mansion thingy, long stretch, but didn't really see much of anything. There are still so many places to look though.
