TROUT CREEK. Trout Creek rises two miles northwest of Kirbyville in eastern Jasper County (at 30°41' N, 93°55' W). Formed by the junction of Boggy Creek and Robinson Branch, Trout Creek flows on southeast for 11½ miles, into Newton County and through the E. O. Siecke State Forest, to its mouth on Big Cow Creek, five miles east of Call in Newton County (at 30°37' N, 93°48' W). The area is gently undulating terrain surfaced by deep loamy soil in the creek's upper stages, but it levels out in Newton County. The area is mostly woodland and pastureland.
