Blue Branch rises five miles northeast of McDade in northwestern Lee County (at 30°21' N, 97°10' W) and flows northeast for 5½ miles to its mouth on Middle Yegua Creek, two miles northeast of Blue (at 30°25' N, 97°10' W). The stream flows through rolling prairie with clay loam soils. Mesquite and grasses predominate in the region.
