ALKALI CREEK. Alkali Creek rises nine miles west of Roby and three miles southeast of the intersection of U.S. Highway 180 and Farm Road 611 in west central Fisher County (at 32°42' N, 100°31' W) and runs sixteen miles northeast to its mouth on the Clear Fork of the Brazos River, two miles north of Roby and just east of State Highway 70 (at 32°47' N, 100°23' W). It crosses flat, flood-prone terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
