ROUND HOLE BRANCH. Round Hole Branch, an intermittent stream, rises between Selden and Clairette in south central Erath County (at 32°07' N, 98°06' W) and runs south for five miles to its mouth on the North Bosque River, a half mile northeast of Clairette (at 32°02' N, 98°06' W). It is damned to form a small lake near Clairette. Initially the stream traverses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by mostly deep, fine, sandy loams that support hardwood trees, conifers, brush, and grasses. In the lower reaches of the creek, the terrain changes to steep slopes and benches, with shallow clay loam soils that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
