FISH CREEK (Tarrant County). Fish Creek rises just south of Arlington in eastern Tarrant County (at 32°40' N, 97°07' W) and runs northeast for twelve miles to its mouth on Mountain Creek Lake, five miles south of Lakeview (at 32°42' N, 96°58' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by dark, commonly calcareous clays that support mesquite, grasses, and cacti.
