CANEY CREEK (Red River County). Caney Creek rises about a mile southeast of White Rock in northeastern Red River County (at 33°39' N, 94°55' W) and runs northeast for 5½ miles to its mouth on Pecan Bayou, about eight miles east of the Bowie county line in northeastern Red River County (at 33°42' N, 94°54' W). Local soils are clayey. The creek is intermittent in its upper reaches, where the soils are used mainly as pastureland. As the creek flows toward its mouth, it enters a heavily wooded area where shortleaf pine and post oaks and southern red oaks predominate.
