JOE LAKE CREEK. Joe Lake Creek rises four miles southeast of Northfield in northeastern Motley County (at 34°14' N, 100°34' W) and runs northeast for ten miles to its mouth on the North Pease River, near the intersection of Farm roads 94 and 1440 in extreme northwestern Cottle County (at 34°18' N, 100°30' W). Joe Lake Creek is possibly a later name for Sisk Creek, which is shown in the same location on an early Matador Ranch map. The stream traverses an area of gently rolling hills with moderately steep slopes, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support primarily mesquite and grasses.
