ELM CREEK (Lee County). Elm Creek rises 5½ miles southeast of Manheim in western Lee County (at 30°13' N, 96°04' W) and runs northeast for eighteen miles to its mouth on West Yegua Creek, 2½ miles west of Lincoln (at 30°17' N, 96°56' W). The creek passes through an area of steep slopes and rolling hills with shallow to moderately deep clayey soils that support mixed hardwoods, pines, and grasses.
