GOHLKE CREEK. Gohlke Creek rises a mile northwest of Cuero in central DeWitt County (at 29°07' N, 97°17' W) and runs south for five miles, passing through Cuero before reaching its mouth on the Guadalupe River, 1½ miles south of Cuero (at 29°04' N, 97°17' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions. Local vegetation includes water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
