PECAN BAYOU (Red River County). Pecan Bayou rises two miles south of Woodland in northwestern Red River County (at 33°47' N, 95°16' W). Intermittent at places in its upper and middle reaches, the winding stream flows easterly, then southeasterly, then northeasterly, for forty miles to its mouth on the Red River in northeastern Red River County, one mile west of the Bowie county line (at 33°44' N, 94°46' W). The soils along the creek are loamy and clayey, and the area is primarily agricultural. Fields and pastures are interspersed with heavily wooded areas where pines and various hardwood predominate.
