CATLETT CREEK. Catlett (Callett, Catlertt) Creek rises five miles north of Decatur in north central Wise County (at 33°19' N, 97°36' W) and runs southeast for twelve miles to its mouth on Sweetwater Creek, five miles north of Bluett (at 33°14' N, 97°26' W). The stream is dammed in its upper reaches. It traverses flat terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwood trees, conifers, brushes, and grasses.
