More Info




The Outlaw Trails Historical Museum is a collection of relics and story telling exhibits pertaining to the local area from past years gone by. Designed to entertain and educate everyone from two to ninety two! How can that be? To begin with as you enter the museum there is an1800's era toy exhibit to delight young ones. Followed by the Katy Railroad Forms Cabinet, Morse-Code machine, odd items found under the floor boards and many hard-to-identify items used in Pioneer Days. But don't worry, you will find ample explanations written by historian Ivert Mayhugh or catch him in person and get a personal tour. Sherman is not the only major focus in the museum but features many outstanding small towns, people, special buildings, disasters and great events, all a part of keeping history alive and not forgotten. People are the pride and joy of our past history and in fact you might find some of your relatives mentioned here. There were Outlaws like Frank and Jesse James roaming the area and causing mischief. Highlights also include President Teddy Roosevelts visit to the area on April 5,1905. See examples of early typewriters, televisions, computers, a school room and of course funeral memorabilia since that was the primary use of the building in the 1890's. Located on the 3rd floor of A Touch of Class Antique Mall in Downtown Sherman across from the Grayson County Courthouse. Please note that there is no elevator and you must take stairs to visit. The building is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark and Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. It would an honor to share a "little bit of history" with you and hope you would spend a "little bit of time" enjoying Historic Downtown Sherman.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 21)

EXCELLENT. Water stained; 80 degrees; 1.70 feet below. Striped bass are good scattered from shallow flats to deeper water biting on slabs. Some topwater action early in the morning, and midday. Sand bass are mixed in with the stripers on shallow flats. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors. Striped bass are great on live shad fishing main lake flats and secondary ledges in 30-40 feet of water. A lot of smaller fish with the occasional big fish, the size will improve as the weather cools off. Largemouth and smallmouth bass are slow with the amount of shad in the lake making it tough to fool them. Still off the banks in 8-15 feet of water fishing soft plastics late in the day and topwaters the first couple hours of the day. Key in on underwater points and brush piles using electronics. Blue and channel catfish are great on flats in 20-30 feet of water moving shallower as the water temperature cools off using cut shad and prepared baits. Trophy blue catfish season is just around the corner. Crappie are mostly undersized with better fish mixed in as you move around. Target roaming fish with electronics fishing the tops of brush piles in 10-15 feet of water. Minnows mainly and a jig if you get them biting well.
