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 (Apr. 17)

GOOD. Water normal stain; 58 degrees; 1.53 feet below pool. Striped bass fishing is great drifting live shad around the islands or past the bridges near the rivers. Rain should finish off the spawn and look for bait on the banks with feeding fish near them. Top waters are working on sandy flats in 2-8 feet of water. Smallmouth bass are good on live shad along the bluffs on the banks in 2-4 feet of water. Also fair on spooks early and look for largemouth off the banks in 6-12 feet of water on main lake points near rocks. Catfish are fair on cut shad along the rocks in 30-45 feet of water. Drifting cut rough fish or gizzard shad in 5-10 feet of water near the river could produce a big fish after a rain with an inflow of dirty water. Crappie are good on brush piles in 12-18 feet of water on jigs using electronics to locate active fish working in and out of the brush. Look for spawners shallow with warmer temperatures in the forecast. Report by Jacob Orr, Guaranteed Guide Service Lake Texoma. Threadfin shad are spawning along the banks. Hybrid stripers are good on topwaters in the morning along rocky banks. Some days the egrets are working leading the way to fish. Some schooling activity under gulls. After the morning bite ends switch to swimbaits and Alabama rigs in 10-25 feet of water on the edges and dropoffs. This pattern should hold for the next 4-6 weeks while shad spawn near docks and banks. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors.
