MCDONALD BAYOU. McDonald Bayou rises near McDonald Lake in south central Victoria County (at 28°42' N, 97°02' W) and runs southeast for seven miles to its mouth on Linn Lake (at 28°36' N, 96°57' W). The region's flat to rolling prairie is surfaced by permeable clay that supports mesquite and various grasses.
