MARTIN BRANCH (Frio County). Martin Branch rises two miles north of the La Salle county line and two miles west of Dilley in south central Frio County (at 28°42' N, 99°15' W) and flows northeast and then southeast for eighteen miles to its mouth on the Frio River, eleven miles northeast of Millet in central La Salle County (at 28°37' N, 99°01' W). Burns Reservoir is located on Martin Branch immediately north of the Frio-La Salle county line. Variable terrain around the stream is surfaced by sand and clay that support scrub brush, cacti, grasses, water-tolerant hardwoods, and conifers.
