PAT'S CREEK. Pat's Creek rises in southwestern Ochiltree County (at 36°04' N, 101°03' W). Two branches, Pat's Creek (formerly known as Walker Creek) and the East Fork of Pat's Creek, flow together and then join the Canadian River (at 35°57' N, 100°58' W) to the south. Most of the creek, including its two forks, lies within Roberts County. The distance from the source of each fork to the confluence with the Canadian is about six miles. The creek flows through flat to rolling terrain where sandy loams support brush and grasses. The area was once part of Henry Cresswell's Bar CC Ranch range.
