FISH CREEK (Nolan County). Fish Creek rises a half mile southwest of State Highway 153 and nine miles northeast of Blackwell in southeast Nolan County (at 32°12' N, 100°15' W) and runs southeast for twenty-four miles to its mouth on Valley Creek, a half mile southwest of State Highway 53 and 2½ miles southeast of Wingate in northwest Runnels County (at 32°01' N, 100°06' W). It traverses flat terrain with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by expansive clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
