STINKING CREEK (Kent County). Stinking Creek, also known as Little Stinking Creek, rises a mile south of Harmony in southeast Kent County, four miles north of the Fisher county line (at 33°01' N, 100°34' W). The stream travels northeast for sixteen miles to its mouth on the Salt Fork of the Brazos River, three miles southwest of Peacock in west central Stonewall County (at 33°10' N, 100°27' W). The surrounding moderately steep slopes are surfaced by silt loams that support grasses and mesquite.
