Lee County Public Fishing Lake will reopen on March 28, 2023, under the operation of a new lake manager. The lake had been temporarily closed during the transition of operations to the new manager. Lee County Public Fishing Lake is located at 321 Lee Road 808, in Opelika, Alabama.

The facility features a 130-acre lake, public restrooms, a fishing pier and a boat ramp. Bait, fishing tackle and snacks may be purchased at the lake. In addition to a valid fishing license, a daily $3 fishing permit is required.
