River Summary: The Marys River is a river in western Oregon that flows for approximately 41 miles from the Coast Range to the Willamette River. It was named after a Native American tribe that lived in the area. The river has historically been used for fishing by the local tribes and later for logging and transportation. It also has been a source of water for agriculture and drinking water for nearby towns. The river is dammed at two locations, the first being the Marys River Dam, which creates the Starker Reservoir, and the second being the Woods Creek Dam, which creates the Woods Creek Reservoir. These reservoirs are used for water storage, flood control, and hydroelectric power generation. The Marys River is a popular spot for recreation, including fishing, kayaking, and hiking along its banks.
