ELM CREEK (Coleman County). Elm Creek rises in southwestern Coleman County (at 31°50' N, 99°40' W) and runs south for twenty-six miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, on the Coleman-Concho county line (at 31°32' N, 99°39' W). The creek, which is used by fishermen, passes through steep-sloped terrain with shallow clay loam soils that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
