WEAVER CREEK. Weaver Crek rises two miles northeast of College Hill in western central Bowie County (at 33°27' N, 94°37' W). It formerly ran southeast for eight miles to its mouth on Bassett Creek three miles northwest of Bassett (at 33°20' N, 94°36' W). Since the construction of Wright Patman Lake in the mid-1950s, the creek has been inundated in its lower reaches and now enters the lake just south of Farm Road 561 (at 33°22' N, 94°36' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It crosses flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports grasses and mixed hardwoods and pines.
