POND CREEK. Pond Creek rises three miles east of Troy in northeastern Bell County (at 31°11' N, 97°15' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, flows in a southeasterly direction for thirty-seven miles, through Bell, Falls, and Milam counties, to its mouth on the Brazos River, two miles southeast of Baileyville (at 31°01' N, 96°46' W). It crosses nearly level to sloping terrain surfaced by clayey soils used predominantly for agricultural purposes, and its banks are forested in places with post oak trees.
