PECAN CREEK (Montague County). Pecan Creek rises in north central Montague County (at 33°47' N, 97°44' W) in the western city limits of Nocona and runs northwest for ten miles to its mouth (at 33°54' N, 97°47' W) on the Red River, at the Oklahoma border ten miles northeast of Belcherville. It traverses flat to rolling terrain, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses. For most of Montague County history the Pecan Creek area has been used as rangeland.
