FLINT CREEK (Coryell County). Flint Creek rises four miles east of Flat in eastern Coryell County (at 31°18' N, 97°34' W) and runs southeast for seven miles to its mouth on Owl Creek, eleven miles north of Belton in Bell County (at 31°14' N, 97°31' W). Since the completion of Belton Lake in 1954, the lower reaches of Flint Creek have been subject to flooding. It traverses an area of rolling prairie with some steep slopes, surfaced by clay loams that support oak, juniper, and grasses.
