SPENCER POOL CREEK
SPENCER POOL CREEK. Spencer Pool Creek rises a mile west of Walhalla in north central Fayette County (at 30°01' N, 96°46' W) and flows south for 7½ miles to its mouth on Clear Creek, one mile south of Roznov (at 29°57' N, 96°42' W). Throughout its course it flows through rolling terrain surfaced by firm clay soils interspersed with fine sandy loam that is highly erodible and marginal for agriculture. Most of the land was heavily farmed at one time but is now used for unimproved pasture for cattle. The creek flows through one large flood control impoundment known locally as Spencer Pool. The vegetation in the area is a mixture of oak and cedar with occasional pine and an understory of yaupon.
