SHERMAN STATE FISHING LAKE AND WILDLIFE AREA
SHERMAN STATE FISHING LAKE AND WILDLIFE AREA
The area was built primarily for fishing, but since construction the lake has leaked severely to the point that, when flows fill the lake, the lake is dry again within two years. The area is now managed primarily for wildlife except for short periods when there is fishable water in the lake.

This is one of the only areas in Sherman County where wildlife is the top priority. The area provides walk-in access only to reduce wildlife disturbances and improve hunting opportunities. Whitetail, Mule deer, pheasants and a few quail are found on the area. When the lake has water in the fall it can produce excellent waterfowl hunting. Demand for public hunting opportunity exceeds the supply of this small wildlife area. Habitat management includes periodic short-term intense spring grazing, control burns and food plots of milo, corn, legumes and wheat.
