MOODY CREEK. Moody Creek (Moodys Creek) rises two miles east of West Mountain in south central Upshur County (at 32°37' N, 94°53' W) and runs southwest for seven miles, through the eastern edge of Gladewater, to its mouth on the Sabine River, just south of Clarksville City in northern Gregg County (at 32°30' N, 95°54' W). The creek is intermittent in its upper reaches. The surrounding flat to low-rolling terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports mixed hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
