BALD EAGLE CREEK
BALD EAGLE CREEK. Bald Eagle Creek, also known as Dry Creek, rises just above the Tom Green county line in south central Coke County (at 31°43' N, 100°29' W) and runs south for twenty miles to its mouth on O. C. Fisher Lake, at the northwest city limits of San Angelo (at 31°32' N, 100°33' W). It traverses rolling prairie, mostly rangeland, surfaced by shallow clay loam and stony soils that support sparse vegetation; grasses and occasional clusters of hardwood trees line the creekbed.
