For great year-round fishing, head to central Nebraska where you’ll find Sherman Reservoir. This location is especially popular for its walleye, crappie, catfish, white bass, and northern pike. The fishing here starts to ramp up in March when people head to the shallow waters of the various bays and coves in search of northern pike. The walleye spawn in April near the dam, which brings a new batch of fishermen. May-June is the peak of walleye fishing with most anglers heading to the drop-offs and points with trolled lures and bait rigs. White bass fishing at Sherman Reservoir has two peaks. The first peak happens from April-May near the Fisherman’s Bridge area. The second peak takes place in the middle of the summer when fishermen typically head out at night. The summer is also a good time to target channel catfish and large flathead catfish. Those looking for crappie should visit in May and target the areas near the bays and coves. In the winter, once the ice is safe, you can ice fish for walleye and crappie.
