HOOKS BAYOU. Hooks Bayou rises two miles northeast of the Spring Hill community in northwestern Bowie County (at 33°36' N, 94°38' W) and runs northeast for ten miles to its mouth on the Red River, three miles north of Woodstock (at 33°37' N, 94°27' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support grasses and mixed hardwoods and pines.
