SALT CREEK (Montague County). Salt Creek rises in central Montague County (at 33°38' N, 97°44' W) one mile south of Montague and runs northwest eighteen miles to its mouth (at 33°53' N, 97°47' W) on the Red River one mile north of the Red River Station Crossing. Generally flat terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loams which support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. For most of the county's history the Salt Creek area has been used as rangeland.
