WEST CARANCAHUA CREEK
WEST CARANCAHUA CREEK. West Carancahua Creek rises two miles northeast of White Hall in northeastern Jackson County (at 29°04' N, 96°23' W) and runs south for twenty-eight miles to its junction with East Carancahua Creek, at the head of Carancahua Bay in extreme southeastern Jackson County (at 28°46' N, 96°25' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It crosses flat to rolling prairie, surfaced by dark clay that supports mesquite, grasses, and cacti; downstream, the flat and locally depressed terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
