DRY CREEK (Fort Bend County). Dry Creek, intermittent in its upper reaches, rises on the Brazos River just northeast of Rosenberg in central Fort Bend County (at 29°32' N, 95°47' W) and runs southeast for eleven miles to its mouth on Smithers Lake (at 29°30' N, 95°40' W). The vegetation along its banks consists mainly of mixed hardwoods interspersed with various prairie grasses. The variable terrain is surfaced by highly impermeable soil and calcareous clay.
