CLAY LAKE. Clay Lake is just east of the Brazos River in extreme southern Brazos County (at 30°26' N, 96°16' W). The half-mile lake is in a marshy area and drains into Franks Creek. It is surrounded by flat to rolling terrain with steep margins, surfaced by sandy loam that supports pecan, willow, and grasses.
