    I have been going there since 1957. If you look at my picture that is where it was taken at the Opal James look-out . It was named for a park ranger that was shot & killed there sometime back.
    I was there in June but, had to stay at Magazine Mountain State Park.
    The biggest one I caught was 42#.
    We had a tornado hit and nearly blew us off the mountain done a lot of damage to Cuba Ark. I think 3 people were killed .
    I love it there !!!!!!!!
    The reason we could not stay at Blue Mtn. is because of high water
    I catch a lot of channel cat there also.
    I live on Lake Tawakoni "THE CATFISH CAPITAL OF TEXAS "
    but I love going to Blue Mountain and will go back next year and the next until they put me in the ground. :smile2:
