TURKEY CREEK (Cass County). Turkey Creek rises 1½ miles northeast of Hughes Springs in southwestern Cass County (at 33°01' N, 94°35' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the stream flows southeast for six miles to its mouth on Hughes Creek, 3½ miles northeast of Avinger (at 32°57' N, 94°32' W). The soils in the area are loamy and sandy, and the land is gently rolling to hilly. The area around the creek is heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating.
