DEER CREEK (San Saba County). Deer Creek rises two miles south of Round Mountain in southwestern San Saba County (at 30°55' N, 99°04' W) and runs north for eleven miles to its mouth on the San Saba River (at 31°03' N, 99°04' W). The stream, intermittent for two-thirds of its course, crosses flat to rolling terrain with live oak, mesquite, Ashe juniper, and grasses growing in shallow sandy loam soil.
