The Delaware and Raritan Canal stretches 66 miles from Bordentown on the Delaware River to New Brunswick on the Raritan River. Kingston is a popular spot for fishing on the D&R Canal. The canal runs through the town, and there are several access points where anglers can cast their lines. Some popular spots for fishing in Kingston include the Lock 8 Fishing Access Area and the bridge at Route 27.
The Lock 8 Fishing Access Area is located off Route 27, and it offers a large parking area and access to the canal via a gravel path. Anglers can fish from the banks or wade into the water to cast their lines. This area is known for its bass and sunfish populations, and it's a great spot for families to fish together.
Other canal sections are deep enough to allow fishing from a boat. The canal is home to various fish species, including bass, sunfish, catfish, pickerel, and trout. The New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife stocks the canal with trout each year.
