STINK CREEK. Stink Creek rises 4½ miles southwest of where Interstate Highway 20 crosses the Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad, eleven miles southeast of Sweetwater in northeastern Nolan County (at 32°25' N, 100°14' W). The stream flows north for twelve miles before emptying into Sweetwater Creek a quarter mile north of the Fisher-Nolan county line and twelve miles northeast of Sweetwater in far southeastern Fisher County (at 32°32' N, 100°14' W). Little Stink Creek empties into Stink Creek near the Missouri Pacific Railroad eleven miles northeast of Sweetwater (at 32°'31 N, 100°'14 W). The vegetation along the creek consists of water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. The terrain is flat with locally shallow depressions; soils consist of expansive clays with high to low permeability.
