MUD CREEK (Coleman County). Mud Creek rises in the eastern part of Coleman County (at 31°46' N, 99°19' W) and flows northeast for ten miles to its mouth on Jim Ned Creek, in western Brown County (at 31°50' N, 99°11' W). The stream flows through rolling terrain surfaced by loamy soil, grasses, and mesquite. It is dammed four miles northeast of Santa Anna to form a lake with a capacity of 600 acre-feet. The lake serves as a source of water, for flood control, and as a fishing and recreational area.
