SALT CREEK (DeWitt County). Salt Creek rises in western DeWitt County (at 29°06' N, 97°40' W) just west of the Karnes county line and runs southeast for fourteen miles to its mouth (at 28°58' N, 97°35' W) on the east fork of Smith Creek, halfway between Yorktown and Nordheim. Flat to rolling terrain is surfaced by highly permeable soil which supports scrub brush and prairie grasses.
