CLEAR CREEK (Henderson County). Clear Creek rises two miles west of Meridith Cemetery in north central Henderson County (at 32°21' N, 95°55' W). It formerly ran southwest for fourteen miles to its mouth on Cedar Creek, just west of Caney City. With the construction of the Cedar Creek Reservoir in the early 1960s the lower four miles of the creek were inundated, and the creek now enters the lake near the Farm Road 2329 bridge (at 32°13' N, 96°03' W). The surrounding flat to rolling terrain is surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
