Lee County Public Fishing Lake Reopens Feb. 1

Lee County Public Fishing Lake will reopen on February 1, 2018, under the operation of new lake managers Chris and Tina Wright. The lake had been temporarily closed during the transition of operations to the new lake managers. Lee County Public Fishing Lake is located 6 miles southeast of Opelika (or 9 miles east of Auburn, Ala.).

The lake offers public restrooms, a covered fishing pier, and a boat ramp. Bait, fishing tackle and snacks may be purchased at the concession. In addition to a valid fishing license, a daily $3 fishing permit is required for anglers 12 years old and older to fish. Boats may be rented for $5 and privately owned boats may be launched for $3. State public fishing lake licenses are available for purchase at the lake.
