Sherman Fishing


category : Fishing
Fishing and power boating are the mainstays of this central Nebraska reservoir. Rugged drainage ways branch off the main reservoir body
providing interesting bays and coves and outstanding fishing oportunities.

The most popular species sought by anglers are walleye, crappie, catfish, white bass, and northern pike. Fishing typically begins in March when northern pike can be caught in the shallow waters of coves and bays. Fishing for walleye during their April spawning period is very popular. Walleye fishing usually peaks in May-June. White bass fishing typically has two peaks—one in April-May and the second peak in mid-summer. Crappie catches are excellent in May as the reservoir fills and flooded habitat is available in the coves and bays. Ice-fishing for crappie and walleye can also be productive over submerged cover or habitat. Channel catfish provide good angling opportunities throughout the summer months, and large flathead catfish provide the possibility for trophy-sized fish.

Perhaps the most popular fishing spot on the reservoir, Fisherman\'s Bridge
provides pedestrian fisherman access to the supply canal immediately below the reservoir\'s inlet structure. Drinking water and vault toilet facilities are provided. Visitors want to be sure to watch for storm clouds as access to this area can be particularly difficult when the road gets wet.
