BEAR CREEK (Motley County). Bear Creek rises twelve miles northeast of Matador in east central Motley County (at 34°08' N, 100°41' W) and flows southeast for six miles before it joins the Middle Pease River four miles west of Tee Pee City (at 34°04' N, 100°37' W). The stream traverses an isolated part of eastern Motley County characterized by sloping terrain surfaced by thin silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
