ROUGH CREEK (Scurry County). Rough Creek rises near the Cogdell-Fuller oilfield fifteen miles north of Snyder in north central Scurry County (at 32°55' N, 100°57' W) and runs for thirty miles, first south-southeast through isolated ranchland in northern Scurry County, then east-northeast west of the Fisher county line. Fed by numerous tributaries, including Ennis, Cottonwood, and Spring creeks, Rough Creek becomes a year-round stream several miles west of the Fisher county line. It joins the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River in northwest Fisher County ten miles northwest of Rotan (at 32°57' N, 100°35' W). The creek flows through an area of gullies and low hills surfaced with shallow soils that support sparse vegetation.
