GYP CREEK. Gyp Creek, also known as Gypsum Creek, rises about three miles east of Rotan in northern Fisher County (at 32°52' N, 100°24' W) and runs northeast for about fifteen miles to its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, some ten miles south of Aspermont in southern Stonewall County (at 33°00' N, 100°17' W). The stream travels through rolling to steep-sloped terrain surfaced by shallow clay and sandy loam soils that support juniper, cacti, and sparse grasses.
