AEP Camp and Mushrooms

Discussion in 'Southeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by FishThis, Mar 12, 2008.

  1. Hello to all! Going down for our annual trip the end of April to Ohio Power. 2 questions... First, Do all campsites open in April or is it the first week of May?
    Second, last year we stumbled across a few Morels and they were tasty fried up over the fire! I have never hunted Morels before and would like some advice on where to look for them. Thanks in advance!

    You will waste hours and days if you don't know what an ELm or an Ash look like. Learn to recognize the bark, leaves and the canopy. Once you can pick out these types of trees you are on your way. One thing about hunting AEP, just drive around and you will see cars parked all along the road, most of these people are hunting mushrooms. Be careful though because up untill noon it may be a turkey hunter and them big guns make big holes!!! If you are taking little ones into the woods please wait until after noon, also make sure you know what you are picking although by then most of the false morels are gone. I rarely find them down there but occasionally I come accross one.
    One more thing,
    If you see Bigfoot don't tell anyone, they'll never believe you:D

    Yea don't worry about the bears, snakes and the occational big cat sighting. Bigfoot will just say hi and keep walking. Oh yea and don't worry about the Campsite C lake monster, he's a dandy.
  5. hey fishin junky!!!! thats not funny. i came at c all of the time and by god there is someting out there!!!! jason
  6. It's not my first trip down to Ohio Power, I've been turkey hunting, grouse hunting and fishing there since the late 80's. I never put much effort into hunting mushrooms so thanks for the advice on that. Not a first timer.

    I here ya brother, It's a danged shame. I don't know but maybe with the price of metals going up there will be some can hunters out. This could be just wishful thinking though. I for one will continue to carry a small garbage bag in my pack and carry out what I can. That don't add up to much seeing I don't get there too often, but every little bit counts.
  12. that you are right. they have a thing going on where you can GIVE some of your time to help clean up the land. me and the old lady do a weekend a year. it all adds up in the end. jason
