WENATCHEE — This year’s morel mushroom season got off to a late start, but in North Central Washington, it’s proving to be bigger than anyone predicted.

So far, 1,741 people have bought commercial permits to pick morels. That’s twice as many as the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest sold in 2007, the year after the 175,000-acre Tripod Fire, a banner year for commercial mushroom permit sales.
