BOW CREEK. Bow Creek rises three miles northwest of the Davis triangulation station in west central Throckmorton County (at 33°11' N, 99°23' W) and runs north for seventeen miles to its mouth on Millers Creek, at the south end of Millers Creek Reservoir (at 33°22' N, 99°26' W). The stream traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
