TIGE CANYON CREEK. Tige Canyon Creek rises in northwest Fisher County six miles southeast of the Fisher-Scurry-Kent county intersection (at 32°53' N, 100°35' W). The intermittent stream begins at an elevation of 2,100 feet and travels northeast for four miles. Its confluence with the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River occurs seven miles northwest of Rotan (at 32°55' N, 100°32' W). The creek runs through isolated rangeland and drops some 300 feet during its journey. The area has densely dissected gullies and low hills with scant soil. Vegetation is sparse and in some areas completely absent.
