On-site fishing is a relaxing recreational opportunity available at the Complex. Lakes are open from sunrise to sunset.

East Lake is located on the northeast side of the Complex on a 117 acre strip pit and Derby Lake located to the southeast of the Events Center. Each are loaded with largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill, redear sunfish, channel catfish, trout, and white, black and hybrid crappie.

The addition of the boat ramps and fishing docks will make this area very popular among anglers and another way for visitors to spend their day at the Complex.
