River chutes or flows are formed from the river eroding the bank in a certain area to cut through a meander. This can lead to a straightening out in the river. This is clearly a chute given the fact that it created an island where the chute cuts the meander off from the river. For now the river has two paths to take, along the meander or through the chute, but as time goes on the chute will grow in size, and eventually leading to an oxbow lake from the meander and a new main channel from the chute. This chute on the Missouri River surrounds Johnson island which is a natural island accessible by land or water in which you can fish and hike. It is part of the Big Muddy National Fish and Wildlife Refuge that takes part in ensuring chutes and other natural features are still prevalent on the river today.
