FLORES BAYOU. Flores Bayou rises 6½ miles north of Angleton in central Brazoria County (at 29°16' N, 95°26' W) and runs southeast for twelve miles, passing along the western edge of Danbury and across the Missouri Pacific tracks before reaching its mouth on Austin Bayou, six miles east of Angleton (at 29°11' N, 95°19' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, is dammed to form in its middle reaches the Bieri Lakes and other reservoirs. The bayou traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
