POWELL CREEK. Powell Creek, once known as Lick Creek, rises 2½ miles southwest of Douglassville in northwestern Cass County (at 33°09' N, 94°25' W). Intermittent in its upper and middle reaches, the stream flows northeast for five miles to its mouth on Wright Patman Lake, three miles northwest of Douglassville (at 33°13' N, 94°23' W). The creekbed is sandy and loamy, and the gently undulating to gently rolling area is heavily wooded with pines and various hardwoods.
