INDIAN CREEK (Uvalde County). Indian Creek rises ten miles west of Concan in northwestern Uvalde County (at 29°31' N, 99°54' W) and runs south for twenty-seven miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, near the Lewis Ranch nine miles northwest of Uvalde (at 29°17' N, 99°56' W). Terrain is flat with local shallow depressions interspersed with low relief surfaces; it is surfaced in the creek's upper reaches by very shallow to shallow and stony clays and loams, which change to deep clays and loams toward the mouth. The soils support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and pecans.
