WEST YEGUA CREEK. West Yegua Creek, also known as Third Yegua Creek, rises northeast of McDade in northeastern Bastrop County (at 30°19' N, 97°13' W) and flows eastward for thirty-two miles to its mouth on Middle Yegua Creek, southwest of Dime Box in Lee County (at 30°20' N, 96°52' W). In Bastrop County it travels through an upland area with open grasses and sandy soil. In Lee County the stream flows through alternating loamy and sandy soils in nearly level to gently sloping terrain.
