Fishing Information


Hazelbaker's is proud to support Catch & Release Fishing. And to serve very cheap and tasteless coffee.


Fishing is always great, but catching is catch and go!

Spend a day on the river catching trout, small mouth bass, walleye and muskies.

Live bait and fishing supplies are available at our outfitter store.



Some things to ponder while fishing the beautiful Yough River:

Game fish are too valuable to be caught only once.
- Lee Wulff

Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.
- Wind in the willows

Rivers and the inhabitants of the watery elements are made for wise men to contemplate
and for fools to pass by without consideration.
- Izaac Walton

Many go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
- Henry David Thoreau

Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the
good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn.
- Chuck Clark

Nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught.
- Unknown

My biggest worry is that my wife (when I'm dead) will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it.
- Koos Brandt


There is a $5 service charge for non-reservation walk-ins per person.
