ROUGH CREEK (San Saba County). Rough Creek rises seven miles south of San Saba in eastern San Saba County (at 31°05' N, 98°41' W). The creek, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, flows east for 14½ miles to its mouth on the Colorado River (at 31°08' N, 98°33' W). At one point it has been dammed to form Hubbard Tank. The area is characterized by flat to steep terrain with Ashe juniper, live oak, and grasses growing in clayey and sandy loam soils.
