Quick tangent here, bearpaw mentioned boletes and I'm not as experienced with them. Do the yellow pored ones cause gastric upset or does anyone know what ones to avoid in Eastern Washington for boletes?

Lots of Boletes to consider.  None are truly poisonous, but some can cause stomach issues for individuals.  Scratch the undersized of the cap to see if it stains blueish - if it does, proceed with caution if you want to eat it.  Cook thoroughly.

Kings have a pretty distinctive - bulbous shape - and will not stain blue.  Hardest part is to get to them before the bugs!  When you cut one, look at the base for signs of bugs, cut out flesh that looks too hammered and enjoy the rest. 

Great guide for PNW mushrooms:

Right, and I guess I knew that the ones that bruise blue after cutting were ones to steer clear of but I heard regardless that the yellow pored ones would make you sick. Thanks for the input.
