FISH CREEK (Young County). Fish Creek rises two miles north of the Stephens county line in extreme southwest Young County (at 33°04' N, 98°57' W) and runs east for sixteen miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, four miles north of South Bend (at 33°03' N, 98°43' W). It is joined by the North Fork of Fish Creek, which rises in western Young County (at 33°05' N, 98°50' W) and runs southeast eight miles to empty into Fish Creek (at 33°03' N, 98°50' W), and by Salt Branch, which rises in south central Young County (at 33°01' N, 98°45' W) and runs three miles to its mouth on Fish Creek (at 33°02' N, 98°44' W). The main stream traverses an area of steep to rolling hills surfaced by shallow to moderately deep clay and sandy loams that support mesquite, oak, scrub brush, cacti, grasses, live oak, and juniper.
