PANTHER CREEK (Montague County). Panther Creek rises in north central Montague County (at 33°46' N, 97°41' W) just east of Nocona and runs northwest for ten miles to its mouth (at 33°56' N, 97°44' W) on the Red River, three miles west of Rowland. It traverses flat to rolling terrain, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses. The Panther Creek area historically has been used as rangeland.
