Fishing is a big part of Hastings. Fishing activities run all summer long from kids derbies to professional competitions. The season opens in May with Midnight Madness on the Bridge.
Local species include Muskie, Pickerel, Small and Largemouth Bass, Catfish, Perch, Crappie, and Bluegill. Hastings is the only remaining town in Ontario that still allows fishing from the bridge and some of Ontario’s best fishing can be found here – in fact, it’s pretty hard not to catch a fish in Hastings.
