LAKE FORK OF THE SABINE RIVER
LAKE FORK OF THE SABINE RIVER. The Lake Fork of the Sabine River rises 2½ miles north of Lone Oak in southeastern Hunt County (at 33°05' N, 95°55' W). The stream, intermittent in its upper and middle reaches, enters Rains County five miles northwest of Emory and runs southeast for a total distance of 78 miles to its confluence with the Sabine River eight miles southeast of Mineola. It traverses generally flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loam soils. Historically, the area drained by the Lake Fork has served as crop and range land. Water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and various grasses are common along the stream.
