PICOSO CREEK. Picoso Creek rises (at 28°50' N, 100°23' W) eleven miles northeast of Eagle Pass in north central Maverick County and runs southeast for thirty-seven miles to its mouth (at 28°42' N, 99°58' W) on Comanche Creek, four miles west of Crystal City in southwestern Zavala County. It traverses flat terrain with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
