BRUSHY CREEK (Lamar County). Brushy Creek rises just northeast of Byrdtown and two miles northeast of Pattonville in extreme eastern Lamar County (at 33°36' N, 95°21' W) and flows south for eighteen miles to its mouth on the North Sulphur River, the Delta county line, one mile west of Dawson Lake (at 33°23' N, 95°17' W). The creek traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by dark loam over gray clay in which grow grasses and water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers. Downstream, the land is a low-lying flood plain with a sand and gravel surface.
