CHIAMON BAYOU. Chiamon Bayou rises just northwest of Bronson near the San Augustine county line in western Sabine County (at 31°22' N, 94°01' W). Before the development of the Sam Rayburn Reservoir, the stream ran southwest for 10½ miles to its mouth on Ayish Bayou, fifteen miles south of San Augustine (at 31°17' N, 94°07' W). Sam Rayburn Reservoir inundated the lower reaches of the creek. The surrounding nearly level terrain is surfaced by loam and clay that support patches of dense pine and hardwood forests. The area is used predominantly for agriculture and as forest land.
