PECAN CREEK (Coke County). Pecan Creek rises two miles north of State Highway 156 and eighteen miles west of Robert Lee in western Coke County (at 31°55' N, 100°48' W) and runs fourteen miles northeast to its mouth on the southwest shore of E. V. Spence Reservoir, eight miles northwest of Robert Lee (at 31°58' N, 100°36' W). One of its principal tributaries is North Pecan Creek, which rises four miles north of State Highway 156 (at 31°57' N, 100°47' W) and runs eight miles east to its mouth, just west of Farm Road 2059 (at 31°56' N, 100°40' W). Pecan Creek crosses variable terrain surfaced by shallow to deep sandy, clay, and silt loams that support oak, juniper, elm, mesquite, and grasses.
