MIDDLE BOSQUE RIVER. The Middle Bosque River, intermittent in its upper reaches, heads in Middle Bosque Creek one mile northwest of Turnersville in extreme northern Coryell County (at 31°38' N, 97°47' W) and flows thirty-nine miles southeast, north of Crawford, to its mouth on Lake Waco, just north of the South Bosque River near McGregor Municipal Airport in central McLennan County (at 31°29' N, 97°16' W). The major tributaries include Thorp and Pickens branches. The Middle Bosque flows from rolling prairie surfaced by deep to shallow clay and clay loam that support oak, juniper, and grasses into flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
