TURKEY CREEK (Montague County). Turkey Creek rises northwest of Capps Corner two miles north of Farm Road 1956 in northeastern Montague County (at 33°50' N, 97°36' W) and runs four miles north into Cottonwood Creek, east of Lake Nocona (at 33°52' N, 97°36' W). It crosses through sloping hills surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports scrub brush, mesquite, and grasses into an area that is flat with local shallow depressions, where clay and sandy loam supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
