ELM CREEK (McMullen County). Elm Creek rises eleven miles northeast of Tilden in northeastern McMullen County (at 28°36'N,98°27'W) and flows southeasterly for 7½ miles to it mouth on the Choke Canyon Reservoir (at 28°32'N, 98°24'W). The creek flows through rolling to flat terrain with clay and sandy loams which support grasses, mesquite, chaparral, and water-tolerant hardwoods.
