CHICO CREEK. Chico Creek rises two miles southwest of Guerra in Jim Hogg County (at 26°52' N, 98°55' W) and runs southwest for eight miles to its mouth on San Juan Creek, three miles southeast of Moss in eastern Zapata County (at 26°49' N, 98°59' W). The stream is dammed several times in its middle course. It traverses low-rolling to flat terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support grasses, cacti, some mesquite, and chaparral.
