TIGER CREEK (Mason County). Tiger Creek rises three miles southeast of Katemcy in northern Mason County (at 30°53' N, 99°13' W) and runs northeast through a sandy bed for fourteen miles to its mouth on the San Saba River in McCulloch County, 1½ miles north of the county line (at 31°02' N, 99°08' W). Rising on the eastern edge of the Edwards Plateau, the creek crosses an area characterized by flat to rolling terrain and soils consisting chiefly of deep to shallow sandy and clayey loams. Vegetation consists primarily of brush, grasses, and open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
