PERDIDO CREEK (Goliad County). Perdido Creek rises four miles southeast of Weesatche in northern Goliad County (at 28°48' N, 97°25' W). It formerly ran southeast for seventeen miles to its mouth on Coleto Creek (at 28°44' N, 97°10' W). Since the construction of the Coleto Creek Reservoir in the 1960s, however, the lower portion of the creek has been inundated, and it now enters the lake just north of Fannin. The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by clayey and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
