GOFF BAYOU. Goff Bayou begins near State Highway 35 south of Green Lake in west central Calhoun County (at 28°30' N, 96°48' W) and runs southeast through a set of locks for three miles before disemboguing into Mission Lake a mile northwest of Long Mott. It crosses freshwater marsh with a mud and sand bottom that supports grasses, rushes, cattails, and slough grass. The original site of Nuestra Señora del Refugio Mission was on the stream.
