MOSS CREEK (Bowie County). Moss Creek rises a half mile east of Corley in southern Bowie County (at 33°20' N, 94°23' W) and runs south for 2½ miles to its mouth on Panther Creek (at 33°18' N, 94°23' W). The soils through which the creek flows are loamy, and the area is for the most part heavily wooded, with post oak, blackjack oak, and elm trees predominating. An unnamed tributary of Moss Creek has been dammed to form Crystal Springs Lake.
