SAN FERNANDO CREEK (Llano County). San Fernando Creek rises in north and south forks that converge four miles southwest of Pontotoc in northeastern Llano County (at 30°52' N, 99°00' W). Fed by numerous tributaries, the creek follows a southeasterly course for 25½ miles to its mouth on the Llano River, five miles west of Llano (at 30°45' N, 98°46' W). It traverses an area of the Llano Basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain, locally dissected and covered by soils ranging from sandy to clay loams. Vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak and mesquite.
