Sherman Creek, Shermansdale, PA

Sherman Creek is a 53 mile tributary of the Susquehanna River. I got a tip from a fellow fly fisherman last year about the small mouth fishing. Tim Brookens and I decided to give it a try.

We fished the section off of Haas Road. Both of us used yellow poppers and slaughtered the fish. We figured our count could’ve been 40 with some blue gills mixed in….a hand full of nice sized “smallies”.

I used an 8 1/2 ft. 7 wt. rod and Tim used a 9 ft. 8 wt. which we need for longer casts and heavier flies than we are used to.

Smallmouth fishing is a good option when water temps on the trout streams are 70 degrees and higher.

Nice Smallie

    Used to live in Dauphin and loved Sherman Creek – there’s some huge carp along that Haas Rd. section too!
