NICHOLS CREEK. Nichols Creek rises 5½ miles west of Kirbyville in central Jasper County (at 30°41' N, 93°59' W) and flows southeast for thirty-one miles, through Jasper County and into Newton County, until it reaches its mouth on the Sabine River, 7½ miles north of Deweyville (at 30°23' N, 93°46' W). It is in the East Texas timberland and passes through the clayey, loamy soils and gently undulating terrain of central and south central Jasper and Newton counties. The area is heavily forested with hardwoods. Near its mouth the creek becomes intermittent in the marshlands south of Devil's Pocket.
