    Hey welcome to the BOC if I was you I would check out the Oklahoma roll call, and they should have plent of names and where each of them are from and you can see if anyone on here lives close to you.

    Fred, welcome to the BOC/SOC :cool2:, best catfishing site on the web! Be sure to check out the library, a lot of good info in there. Where do you do most of your catfishing?

    Fred... I once had a cabin between Smithville and Watson on the Upper Mountain Fork. Lived there for a few years before my first divorce forced the sale.

    There usta be some real nice channels at "The Narrows" and an occasional flatcat, but I heard that now the ODWC has planted blues there too.

    All that took place some 30 years ago, so I imagine thangs are a little different now. Did they ever pave over the bricks downtown Broken Bow?:eek:oooh:

    Yep... That was one of the roads I could use to reach my place... about 7 miles up. That low water bridge gets hidden every spring like clockwork. Always check the flood gauge. Sometimes it's underwater and you can't see it. That pole is 14 feet tall.:eek:oooh:

    When the Mountain Fork is that high, it ain't safe to cross anywhere.

    I could tell you stories about some of the folks that lived there back then, but most of them are probably still around... I enjoy breathin and walkin around, preferring that to what they might plan for me iffn I tell...:wink:

    I don't live there now... wish I still had that cabin though... Could see into Arkansas on a clear day. Moved out of there in the mid-80's. There were pine trees over 100 ft tall along the ridge road to the cabin with huge cypress trees lining the Buffalo Creek below the hill. It was like a page from a picture book.

    I built the cabin 24 ft square on the ridge overlooking the creek. It had a full covered porch all the way around it, 8 feet wide. The exterior walls were rocked up with the native quartzite boulders collected from the hillsides. It was so bright in the morning sun that it was hard to look at.

    God, I miss that place! It was beautiful.
