LITTLE PIN OAK CREEK (Lee County). Little Pin Oak Creek rises in a tank 2½ miles north of the junction of Lee, Bastrop, and Fayette counties in southwest Lee County (at 30°08' N, 97°00' W) and runs south-southwest for 8½ miles, through several unnamed flood control impoundments, to its mouth on Pin Oak Creek, a mile north of the Colorado River in Fayette County (at 30°07' N, 97°00' W). The sandy loam through which it flows is rated as fair to poor for agriculture. The local vegetation is a mixture of oaks and cedar with a dense understory of yaupon. Many oil and gas wells dot the area, which is used extensively for unimproved pasture and wildlife habitat.
