LITTLE DUCK CREEK. Little Duck Creek rises three miles southeast of Girard in northeastern Kent County (at 33°21' N, 100°37' W) and runs south for twelve miles to its mouth on the Salt Fork of the Brazos River, four miles southwest of Jayton (at 33°13' N, 100°38' W). Several small reservoirs, including the Jayton City Lake, are found along the creek. For most of its course the stream traverses rugged ranchland. It travels through an area of moderately steep slopes and locally high relief, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
