Snyder Bend Lake is an oxbow of the Missouri River, formed in the early 1960s 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.
