MOORE CREEK (Comanche County). Moore Creek rises a mile northeast of the town of Mercers Gap in southern Comanche County (at 31°48' N, 98°40' W) and flows east to its mouth on Lake Comanche, six miles south of Comanche (at 31°49' N, 98°35' W). Its drainage area is rangeland, and the terrain varies from flat prairie to steep slopes and benches surfaced by shallow sandy and clay loams. Local vegetation includes juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses, with water-tolerant hardwoods along the creekbed.
