Hitchin are still looking for their first league goals of 2018 as Lynn gained a comfortable win to complete the double over the Canaries - avenging the two defeats inflicted on them last season.
Lynn were without the injured Leon Mettam (hip) and Tom Ward (shoulder) giving Cameron King his first start with Dion Frary drafted in for his second. Ryan Hawkins was also given a start with Craig Parker dropping to the bench.
An even opening saw the home side with the first notable effort on goal but Trey Charles' effort was straight at Alex Street.
Lynn took the lead on 17 minutes when Michael Gash picked up a Simon Lappin throw-in and ran into the box unchallenged to fire home.
A minute later Ryan Hawkins nearly doubled the lead but Michael Johnson saved at his feet.
Lynn were taking control of the game with Hawkins firing wide and the a Michael Clunan free kick into the area eluded everyone.
On 40 minutes Hawkins beat the advancing Johnson but his shot hit the base of the post and went out.
Lynn got a deserved second on the stroke of half time when Lappin's cross-shot found King who slotted home from the edge of the box.
The Canaries threat amounted to shots that were either off target or presented Street without problems and two goals in three minutes sealed the points. On 57 minutes Gash, who had been denied by defender Jack James' interception a minute earlier, set up King for a close range tap in.
Then, on the hour mark, Hawkins got the goal he had been threatening when his shot straight at Johnson was fumbled and rolled under the 'keepers body into the net.
The home side did try for a consolation with substitute Brett Donnelly forcing Street to make his first serious save of the game while at the other end Craig Parker forced a good save from Johnson.
Late on Street produced a double save to deny Robbie Burns, first turning his header onto the post and then hooking the ball off the line.
Lynn nearly added a fifth in injury time but substitute Tom Siddons saw his effort kept out by the leg of Johnson.
