ELM CREEK (Stephens County). Elm Creek rises four miles southeast of Eliasville in extreme northern Stephens County (at 32°56' N, 98°42' W) and runs north for five miles to its mouth on the Clear Fork of the Brazos River, three miles southwest of South Bend in southern Young County (at 32°59' N, 98°42' W). The stream traverses an area of rolling hills with clay and sandy loam soils that support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses. Much of the creek's lower drainage area is within the Maxey oilfield.
