CROOKED CREEK (LAVACA COUNTY)
CROOKED CREEK (Lavaca County). Crooked Creek rises near Farm Road 155 four miles northeast of Sublime in eastern Lavaca County (at 29°30' N, 96°44' W) and runs southwest for 9½ miles to its mouth on the Navidad River, 3½ miles south of Sublime (at 29°25' N, 96°47' W). The intermittent stream is dammed several times to provide water for cattle; these small impoundments also provide recreational fishing and some waterfowl habitat. The local soils have a deep sandy clay surface layer that is somewhat poorly drained. The rolling land along the stream, which is in an area locally called "the post oaks," is used primarily as unimproved range for cattle and is an excellent wildlife habitat.
