PECAN CREEK (Tom Green County). Pecan Creek rises near the Schleicher county line in extreme south central Tom Green County (at 31°06' N, 100°19' W) and runs northwest for twenty-three miles to its mouth on the South Concho River, just south of Lake Nasworthy (at 31°20' N, 100°29' W). The surrounding flat to rolling terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
