Red River:
The Red River arises in two forks in the Texas Panhandle and southwestern Oklahoma. The southern and largest fork, the Prairie Dog Town Fork, is formed near Canyon, Texas by the confluence of Palo Duro Creek and Tierra Blanca Creek. The southern fork flows in a southeast direction through Palo Duro Canyon State Park, and past Newlin, Texas to the Texas/Oklahoma state line; at this point it is generally considered to be the main stem of the Red River. The South Fork joins the North Fork near Elmer, Oklahoma and proceeds to follow a winding course for 540 miles along the Texas/Oklahoma border. The Wichita River joins the Red River east of Henrietta, Texas. Near Denison the Denison Dam on the Red River forms Lake Texoma; the lake is also fed by the Washita River from the north. The Red River flows out of the southeast end of the lake and flows in a generally eastward direction to Arkansas. Muddy Boggy Creek flows into the river before the river turns south towards Texarkana. Past Texarkana the river crosses south into Louisiana. Texas towns located along the river or near the river include Hereford, Amarillo, Canyon, Wichita Falls, Burkburnett, Denison and Texarkana.  Prairie Dog Fork Fish Stocking History
