Many thanks to Walter Walsh Auctioneers and The Salmon Pool Inn for facilitating this camera's location and to Thomastown Anglers Association for capitally funding its installation. The River Nore (Irish: An Fheoir) is a 140-kilometre long river. Along with the River Suir and River Barrow, it is one of the constituent rivers of the group known as the Three Sisters. The river drains approximately 977 square kilometres of Leinster The river rises in the Devil's Bit Mountain, North Tipperary. Flowing generally southeast, and then south, before emptying into the Celtic Sea at Waterford Harbour, Waterford. The Brown Trout fishing on the Nore is excellent, especially around Thomastown, The main Salmon fishing is from Inistioge up to the confluence of the River Dinan, upstream of Kilkenny City, with the best fly water being around the Thomastown area. The spring fishing can be a little patchy; the Grilse runs are generally pretty good, especially in May, but the autumn fishing through August and September is where the Nore really shines.
