Yellow Bayou rises five miles west of Wiergate in northern Newton County (at 31°00' N, 93°47' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the watercourse follows a westerly course for thirteen miles to its mouth on Little Cow Creek, five miles northwest of that creek's junction with the Sabine River (at 30°58' N, 93°37' W). Yellow Bayou flows through gently undulating terrain used largely as pasture and woodland, with loblolly and shortleaf pines the dominant trees.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
