Cypress Bayou Lake is a reservoir located near Benton, Louisiana, and was created in the 1960s for flood control purposes. The lake's hydrology is influenced by the Red River, which feeds into it and causes it to fluctuate in size. The lake also receives water from several smaller streams and creeks. The area surrounding the lake is primarily agricultural, with cotton and soybean farming being common. Recreational uses of the lake include fishing, boating, and camping, and the lake is home to a variety of fish species, including bass, catfish, and crappie. The lake also serves as a source of water for the Shreveport-Bossier City area. While snowpack is not typically a significant factor in the lake's hydrology, heavy rainfall events can cause the lake to flood.
