RUNNING CREEK. Running Creek rises a mile south of Martin Springs in south central Hopkins County (at 33°05' N, 95°34' W). The intermittent stream formerly flowed southeast for fourteen miles before emptying into Caney Creek two miles southeast of Yantis in northwestern Wood County (at 32°54' N, 95°31' W). In the late 1970s the lower creekbed was inundated by the new Lake Fork Reservoir and now flows into the reservoir a mile north of the Yantis oilfield. The stream runs through flat to rolling terrain with clay loam and sandy loam soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
