DEER CREEK (Fort Bend County). Deer Creek rises about a mile southeast of Needville in southern Fort Bend County (at 29°22' N, 95°49' W) and runs northeast for seven miles to its mouth on Big Creek (at 29°25' N, 95°43' W). The vegetation along its banks consists mainly of mixed hardwoods interspersed with various prairie grasses. The stream traverses variable terrain surfaced variously by highly impermeable soil and calcareous clays.
