DEER CREEK (Bell County). Deer Creek rises just east of the southern tip of McLennan County in northeastern Bell County (at 31°16' N, 97°16' W) and runs east for twenty-four miles through Bell and Falls counties to its mouth on the Brazos River, four miles from Marlin in Falls County (at 31°17' N, 96°58' W). The creek, intermittent in its upper reaches, runs through nearly level to sloping terrain surfaced by clayey soils used predominantly for agriculture.
