|It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into List of Texas rivers. (Discuss) Proposed since April 2012.|
This is a list of the ten longest Texas rivers. Of the ten streams, all empty into the Gulf of Mexico. Four of the rivers are tributaries: the Pecos flows into the Rio Grande, the Red into the Mississippi River, and the Sabine and Neches flow into Sabine Lake, which is connected to the Gulf of Mexico by the Sabine Pass. The Canadian is a tributary of a tributary. It flows into the Arkansas River, which is itself a tributary of the Mississippi.
The Trinity River is the longest river with its entire drainage basin in Texas. The Colorado is the longest river with both its source based on river name and its mouth in the state. The actual longest source of the Colorado is in New Mexico.
