REUBES CREEK. Reubes Creek rises twelve miles northeast of Menard in northern Menard County (at 31°05' N, 99°46' W) and runs northeast for fifteen miles to its mouth on South Brady Creek, four miles southeast of Melvin in McCulloch County (at 31°09' N, 99°34' W). It traverses flat to rolling prairie with local shallow depressions, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep clay and sandy loams that support oak, juniper, and mesquite upstream and water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses downstream.
