DUCK CREEK (Clay County). Duck Creek rises just west of Lake Arrowhead in northwestern Clay County (at 33°55' N, 98°22' W) and runs southeast in its upper reaches, then east-northeast in its middle and lower reaches, for a total distance of fifteen miles before reaching its mouth on the Little Wichita River, a mile west of Henrietta in central Clay County (at 33°49' N, 98°14' W). The stream traverses generally flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams. The area drained by the stream, along which water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers are common, historically has served as crop and range land.
