NORTH PEASE RIVER
NORTH PEASE RIVER. The North Pease River rises nine miles southeast of Cedar Hill in eastern Floyd County (at 34°05' N, 101°03' W), at an elevation of 3,100 feet. During its sixty-mile course across northern Motley, extreme southeastern Hall, and north Cottle counties, the river descends over 1,500 feet through remote ranchland. It cuts a wide, sandy bed through mostly flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses. The North Pease River joins the Middle Pease River to form the Pease River five miles north of Swearingen in northeastern Cottle County (at 34°14' N, 100°07' W). The North Pease River formed part of the northern boundary for the Matador Land and Cattle Company in Motley County.
