Sabine River:
The 555 mile long Sabine River rises in three branches, the Cowleech Fork, the Caddo Fork, and the South Fork. A fourth branch known as the Lake Fork of the Sabine or Lake Fork Creek, joins the main stream forty miles downstream from the junction of the other three branches. The Cowleech Branch rises in northeast Hunt County and flows southeast for 35 miles to its confluence with the Caddo and South Forks to form the Sabine River Proper. The Caddo Fork rises in two forks, the East and West Caddo Forks; these forks unite in the southern part of Hunt County. The South Fork rises in the southwestern part of Hunt County and flows east for 18 miles to join the Caddo and Cowleech Forks. From this point the Sabine River flows southeast, forming the boundaries between Rains and Van Zandt, Van Zandt and Wood, Wood and Smith, and Smith and Upshur Counties. After crossing most of Gregg County, the river forms portions of the county lines between Gregg and Harrison, Harrison and Rusk, and Harrison and Panola counties before it bends more sharply across Panola County. At the thirty-second parallel in the southeastern corner of Panola County the Sabine becomes the state boundary between Texas and Louisiana, and thus the eastern boundary of Shelby, Sabine, Newton, Orange, and Jefferson Counties. The Toledo Bend Reservoir is located on the river between the boundaries of Louisiana and Texas. The Sabine River empties into Sabine Lake which is formed by the confluence of the Neches and the Sabine Rivers; the lake is drained by Sabine Pass into the Gulf of Mexico. Management of the river and watershed is overseen by the Sabine River Authority of Texas.  Fish Stocking History
