SAN JOSE CREEK. San Jose Creek, also known as Pischachay (Piscachar) Creek, rises eight miles northeast of Freer in north central Duval County (at 28°02' N, 98°29' W) and runs northwest for twenty-two miles to its mouth on a former channel of the Nueces River, twenty-two miles southwest of Tilden in southwestern McMullen County (at 28°10' N, 98°42' W). The surrounding low, rolling terrain descends to flat terrain with locally shallow depressions. Clay and sandy loams support grasses, mesquite, and chaparral in the creek's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses in its lower.
