The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) has informed Linn County Parks that the annual water level drawdown of Foster Reservoir will begin on September 21st. It is anticipated that the drawdown will take approximately two week to complete with the water level expected to hit the winter (low) pool elevation of 613 feet on October 5th.

Boater coming to Foster Reservoir should keep in mind that at some point during the two week draw down process the Gedney Creek and Calkins Park Boat Ramps will close due to low water and the only accessible boat ramp on Foster Reservoir will be at Sunnyside County Park. The Sunnyside Boat Ramp is open for use all year, although larger boats could have a difficult time launching at the winter pool level.

For more information contact Linn County Park at: (541)967-3917.

Some race highlights:

    • We start the day off right with a real shotgun start, mounted posse and all!
    • The water on Foster is flat and calm for a fast swim. Wave starts in each race keep your swim from getting too crowded.
    • Fun, fast, winding, country roads await you on the bike course.
    • Aid stations every mile on the run.
    • It’s a family affair! Mom, Dad, and siblings all race together, and we have a race for everyone, even beginners!
    • We have some of the cutest kids and most enthusiastic volunteers in the west!
    • Our post-race party includes a full on BBQ with local produce, free beer, live music and more!
    • Keep the party going through Saturday evening at our annual bonfire by the lake.
