Neenah Creek, Trout Stream - Wisconsin
Neenah Creek is known for its Brown Trout which starts at McGinnis Lake it’s headwaters in New Chester Township of Adams County and quickly flows through 4 locations of Upper Neenah Creek State Fishery Areas. It flows through Jackson Township right past Wolf Lake then just north of Hill Lake (Private) before it winds its way into Oxford Township of Marquette County making its way into Neenah Lake in the Village of Oxford, Wisconsin. The water flows through Neenah Dam returning back to creek form heading south into Douglas Township Neenah Creek is continually fled by little unknown creeks and streams along its way until meeting up O’Keefe Creek whose headwaters are from Blue Lake right by Jordan Lake back in Adams Cty. The main channel meets up with the South Branch of Neenah Creek getting its water from Mason Lake.

At Big Slough Road it breaks up in to parts one heading south call “Big Slough” like a long skinny pond and the main branch continues on an eastern pattern. Here it gains more wide compared to earlier part creating little oxbows here and there along its way as it crosses under I-39 / 51 interstate in Columbia County. Not too far it finally adds its water to the Fox River right by French Creek Wildlife Area.
