JAKE CREEK. Jake (Jakes) Creek rises less than a half mile east of Madras in central Red River County (at 33°40' N, 94°59' W) and runs south for 10½ miles to its mouth on Kickapoo Creek, four miles southwest of Annona (at 33°31' N, 94°59' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses an area where generally clayey soils support small grains, sorghum, and hay.
