Choctaw Creek

Choctaw Creek rises 3-1/2 miles southwest of Sherman in central Grayson County (at 33°37' N, 96°42' W) and runs northeast for thirty-eight miles to its mouth on the Red River, 2-1/2 miles northwest of Anthony in Western Fannin County (at 33°43' N, 96°22' W). it crosses into Fannin County just north of Ambrose. The surrounding flat terrain with local shallow depressions is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. Some tributaries to Choctaw Creek include South Branch, Cedar Creek, Mill Creek, and Cleveland Branch.
