DYE CREEK. Dye Creek rises five miles southwest of St. Jo in east central Montague County (at 33°39' N, 97°38' W) and runs southeast for five miles to its mouth on Clear Creek, 6½ miles north of Forestburg (at 33°36' N, 97°32' W). It traverses generally flat terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwood trees, conifers, and grasses. The Dye Creek area has served as crop and range land.
