LITTLE PECAN CREEK. Little Pecan Creek rises just southeast of Stanfield in northeastern Clay County (at 33°57' N, 98°00' W) and flows east-southeast for eight miles to its mouth on the Red River, two miles southeast of Stanfield in northeastern Clay County (at 33°57' N, 97°58' W). It traverses generally flat terrain in which local shallow depressions are found. The area drained by the stream-along which water-tolerant hardwood trees and conifers are common-has generally served as crop and range land.
