CRAWFISH CREEK. Crawfish Creek rises fourteen miles southwest of Floydada and four miles west of Farm Road 378 in southwestern Floyd County (at 33°53' N, 101°32' W) and runs twenty-two miles southeast to its mouth on the White River, a mile south of the intersection of Farm roads 651 and 193 in northern Crosby County (at 33°47' N, 101°14' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine sandy loam that supports hardwood trees, conifers, brush, and grasses.
