TURKEY CREEK (Wise County). Turkey Creek rises five miles north of Bridgeport in western Wise County (at 33°15' N, 97°47' W) and runs south for nine miles, through Bridgeport, to its mouth on the West Fork of the Trinity River (at 33°12' N, 97°45' W). The stream traverses a portion of the Cross Timbers region of the county, characterized by rolling hills and native pecan trees. The watershed supports both native and improved grasses.
