BLYTHE CREEK. Blythe Creek rises eight miles southwest of DeKalb in southwestern Bowie County (at 33°28' N, 94°44' W) and extends southeast for fifteen miles before joining Weaver Creek to form Bassett Creek about twelve miles southeast of DeKalb (at 33°20' N, 94°36' W). The soils over which Blythe Creek flows are loamy in the upper reaches and clayey downstream. The land is generally heavily wooded, predominantly with post oak, blackjack oak, and elm.
