ROPER CREEK. Roper Creek begins in southeastern Fayette County (at 29°46' N, 96°49' W) and flows east for 5½ miles to its mouth on Brushy Creek, which leads to the Colorado River (at 29°47' N, 96°46' W). Roper Creek flows through low rolling hills and prairies with loamy surface layers and cracking clayey subsoils. The vegetation consists primarily of oak savanna, grasses, and mesquite.
