ATTOYAC BAYOU. Attoyac Bayou rises one mile south of Minden School in southeastern Rusk County (at 31°57' N, 94°39' W) and flows southeast for sixty miles to its mouth on the Angelina River, at the southeastern corner of Nacogdoches County (at 31°29' N, 94°19' W). The stream at various points forms the boundary between Rusk and Shelby, Nacogdoches and Shelby, and Nacogdoches and San Augustine counties. It crosses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
