CRASCO CREEK. Crasco Creek rises four miles northwest of the town of Rock Island in semiopen prairie in southern Colorado County (at 29°35' N, 96°36' W) and runs southeast for 10½ miles to its mouth on Skull Creek, two miles southwest of Altair (at 29°33' N, 96°29' W). The stream crosses the Rock Island North and the Tait gas fields and runs through nearly level prairie with deep, fine sandy loam surface soil over a mottled clay subsoil. This land is used primarily as cattle pasture and for natural gas production. Near Skull Creek it is also used for gravel production and for rice-growing.
