Big Roche-A-Cri Creek Pictures

Big Roche-A-Cri Creek known for its Brook, Brown & Rainbow Trout originates near Plainfield Township of Waushara County.  It flows to the west through 2 parts of the Big Roche-A-Cri State Fishery Area before entering Leola Township in Adams County, Central Wisconsin.  Once in Adams Cty the trout stream flows past 3 more parts of the State Fishery Area just south of Leola Marsh Wildlife Area where it starts a more southwestern course; a lot of the area around the creek is lower wetlands.  The creek is fed by a bunch of little unnamed creeks as it nicks the northwest corner of Colburn Township into Big Flats Township as it passes through Hidden Waters Development then winds through Trout Valley Subdivision where it meets up with Dry Creek.  


From here it get a little wider and starts creating more little oxbows as it travels south into Preston Township to form Big Roche-A-Cri Lake with a Hydro Dam on the west end of the lake.  Just after the dam the water turns back into a creek again as it enters Strongs Prairie Township and is quickly fed a little more water by Deed Horse Creek.  As Big Roche-A-Cri comes into the little Town of Arkdale it creates Arkdale Lake by another dam.  As the creek water is slowed by the dams and lake the water is naturally warmed up and is not as good as for trout habitat.   Now the water flows passed Crystal Brook Woods before it dumps into Castle Rock Lake which is a manmade body of water part of the great Wisconsin River System.
