ROUGH CREEK (Coleman County). Rough Creek rises in northwestern Coleman County (at 31°56' N, 99°39' W) and runs ten miles northeast to its mouth on Lake Coleman (at 32°03' N, 99°32' W). The surrounding flat to gently rolling terrain has local depressions and is surfaced by shallow clay loam that supports juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
