DRY DEVILS RIVER (Schleicher County). The Dry Devils River rises eight miles west of Eldorado in west central Schleicher County (at 30°54' N, 100°44' W) and runs southwest for sixty-three miles to its mouth on the Devils River, twenty-six miles southwest of Sonora in southwestern Sutton County (at 30°20' N, 100°57' W). It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
