CATARINA CREEK. Catarina Creek rises eleven miles southwest of Catarina in south central Dimmit County (at 28°18'N, 99°49'W) and runs southeast for nine miles before emptying into San Roque Creek 7½ miles southwest of Catarina (at 28°15' N, 99°42' W). The stream rises in rolling hills and ends in flat terrain with shallow depressions. The surrounding clay and sandy loams support scrub brush, mesquite, grasses, and cacti in the upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses in the lower.
