CLEAR CREEK (Hemphill County). Clear Creek rises at the junction of its two branches in north central Hemphill County (at 36°04' N, 100°19' W) and runs south ten miles to its mouth on the Canadian River, at the southern boundary of the Gene Howe Wildlife Management Area (at 35°56' N, 100°19' W). The surrounding flat terrain with occasional rolling hills is surfaced by sand that supports sparse grasses and herbs.
