GLADE CREEK (Hopkins County). Glade Creek rises two miles northwest of the community of Reilly Springs in southeastern Hopkins County (at 33°02' N, 95°34' W). It formerly ran southeast for seven miles to its mouth on Big Cypress Creek, about a mile west of Sharp in northwestern Wood County (at 32°54' N, 95°32' W). After its lower streambed was inundated in the late 1970s by Lake Fork Reservoir, the stream flowed into the reservoir a mile west of Yantis. Glade Creek traverses flat to rolling terrain with clay loam and sandy loam soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
