FISH CREEK (Cooke County). Fish Creek originates from the confluence of North Fish Creek and South Fish Creek at the dam of Moss Lake in north central Cooke County (at 33°46' N, 97°13' W) and winds east, then northwest, southeast, and finally south for a total of three miles to its mouth on the Red River, five miles southeast of Sivells Bend (at 33°46' N, 97°11' W). It traverses an area of flat to rolling terrain surfaced by deep, fine sandy loam that supports brush and various grasses.
