DUCK CREEK (Van Zandt County). Duck Creek rises just over a mile east of Farm Road 2728 in extreme northwest Van Zandt County (at 32°46' N, 96°07' W) and runs north for seven miles before disemboguing into Duck Cove on Lake Tawakoni south of White Point (at 32°50' N, 96°04' W). The stream traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced with clayey and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
