BIG BLUE CREEK. Big Blue Creek rises in two branches in southwestern Moore County. North Big Blue Creek rises four miles southwest of Dumas (at 35°49' N, 102°03' W) and joins the main branch just west of U.S. Highway 287 near the Beauchamp Ranch (at 35°47' N, 101°58' W). The main branch originates eight miles southwest of Dumas (at 35°45' N, 102°03' W) and, fed by several tributaries, flows southeast for twenty-eight miles, through a vast, broken ranching and mineral area, to its mouth on Lake Meredith in the southeast corner of the county (at 35°43' N, 101°40' W).
