LINDSEY CREEK (Kinney County). Lindsey Creek, also known as Agua de Fuera Creek, rises seven miles northwest of Brackettville in central Kinney County (at 29°24' N, 100°20' W) and runs south for thirty-two miles to its mouth on Elm Creek, eight miles southeast of Spofford and just north of the Maverick county line (at 29°06' N, 100°19' W). It traverses flat terrain with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by expansive clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and various grasses.
