MONTAGUE CREEK. Montague Creek rises near Wolf Ridge in north central Cooke County (at 33°42' N, 97°16' W) and runs southeast for eight miles to its mouth on the Elm Fork of Trinity River, two miles west of Gainesville (at 33°38' N, 97°11' W). It was named for Daniel Montague. The creek crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
