This 35-acre area is located 3 miles west of Salix, Iowa. Snyder Bend Lake is an oxbow
of the Missouri River, formed in the early 1960's when the river was channelized.
The lake has been stocked with walleye fingerlings in the past, a cooperative project
with the River City Anglers of Siouxland. Other popular game fish include largemouth
bass, northern pike, bluegill, crappie, catfish and perch.
A wildlife refuge has been established at Snyder Bend and no disturbance or human
traffic is allowed on the refuge for several months in the fall. Please observe refuge
dates as posted. Park facilities are open and pressurized water systems are available
May 1 through October 31.
