LINNVILLE BAYOU. Linnville Bayou rises south of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe line in southeastern Wharton County (at 29°16' N, 95°51' W) and runs southeast for thirty-five miles, forming a part of the Brazoria-Matagorda county line before reaching its mouth on Caney Creek, near the juncture of Farm roads 521 and 457 in Matagorda County (at 28°57' N, 95°43' W). It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
