SHOAL CREEK (Cass County). Shoal Creek, also known as Jackson Creek, rises 2½ miles southeast of Douglassville in north central Cass County (at 33°10' N, 94°19' W), and runs north for two miles to its mouth on Ellington Creek, where it runs into Wright Patman Lake, 3½ miles east of Douglassville (at 33°12' N, 94°19' W). It traverses gently undulating to gently rolling terrain with loamy soils. The area is heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating.
