MOORE CREEK (Fisher County). Moore Creek rises ten miles northeast of Rotan in northeastern Fisher County (at 32°54' N, 100°18' W) and runs nine miles northeast to its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork Brazos River, three miles west of U.S. Highway 83 in south central Stonewall County (at 33°01' N, 100°14' W). Locally faulted rolling to steep slopes of gypsiferous red beds with dolomite are surfaced by shallow clay and sandy loams that support juniper, cacti, and sparse grasses.
