SPRING CREEK (Live Oak County). Spring Creek rises fourteen miles southwest of George West in southwestern Live Oak County (at 28°11' N, 98°18' W) and runs northeast for sixteen miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, 1½ miles southeast of George West (at 28°19' N, 98°05' W). It crosses low rolling to flat terrain with local dissections and locally shallow depressions surfaced by deep to shallow clay and sandy loam that supports scrub brush, cacti, and grasses in the creek's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses in its lower.
