History

  • The club, originally called Sherwood Rod and Gun Club, was organized in 1940.  At that time, the club did not own any facilities, so meetings were held at a store in Sherwood.  The dues were $3 per year, which included a subscription to the Northwest Angler Magazine.

The Future

  • A five-acre lake, which will be stocked by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, is planned as well.

What a way to start a beautiful weekend on the Oregon coast

Patch, our cat is waiting for breakfast as he enjoys the Sun in Lowell while the Valley and Eugene has a blanket of fog. A 13 mile drive to Lowell east of I-5 and you can escape the fog that Eugene residents put up with. It is worth the short commute to live out of the fog for most of the winter.

A short 13 mile drive east to Lowell and you can escape the Valley fog. 95% of the time that Eugene is socked in with fog there is blues skies in Lowell.
