Fishing just might be the biggest pastime in Hazelton. A sport stemming though centuries of tradition, the Hazelton area is a prime location for fishermen to reel in some of the best catches. There are many rivers and lakes to fish on; each offering a new and different experience. Summer to early fall is the busy season for catching various types of salmon, while October is the time to target steelhead. New Hazelton Tourism has created a wonderful brochure that provides an excellent visual organizer for the lakes, which can be found here: Link
