May used to be when you could count on them. Last year April was too late for me. I suspect this year will be much more like a "normal" year, maybe even a bit late. You want the low lying areas that flood to be very wet still. I seem to recall black flies being at their peak very often when the fiddleheads were at their prime.

Mine are not out at all yet, checked last weekend and was surprised to find that while things are starting to move along on the farm, there was still a fair amount of snow in the bush, will take a little walk this weekend and see where things are, if nothing else the wild mustard should be up and going for a nice picking.. I don't think I will see any fiddle heads around here till may..

Too late for fiddleheads now in Eastern Ontario but this is what I learned, as a kid, growing up with herringchokers.
The ones with the white fuzz are NOT edible, if they have a brownish husk, they are the good ones.
