GILMORE CREEK. Gilmore Creek rises a mile southeast of Gibson in extreme southwestern Erath County (at 31°59' N, 98°13' W) and runs east eleven miles, passing through Gilmore Creek Lake before reaching its mouth on the North Bosque River, a half mile east of the Hamilton county line (at 32°00' N, 98°04' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It is surrounded by an area of steep slopes and benches, surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
