    The River Nore rises in Co. Tipperary and flows eastwards through Borris-in-Ossory and then south through Co. Kilkenny, passing through or close by the towns of Durrow, Ballyragget, Kilkenny, Bennettsbridge and Thomastown to join the River Barrow upstream of New Ross, Co. Wexford. It is tidal from Inistioge Bridge to its confluence with the Barrow. It is basically a limestone river with very rich fly life. Much of the catchment is given over to tillage, pastureland, and bloodstock. Mill weirs are a feature of the river, and these give rise to long, deep stretches and slow-flowing water. The banks are high in places, and there is an excessive amount of tree cover and vegetation in many places, which makes fishing difficult.

    There is good salmon fishing on this river which is confined mainly to the tidal confluence at Inistioge up as far as the confluence of the River Dinan above Kilkenny City. All legal angling methods are allowed subject to the rules of the particular fisheries. Some stretches are fly only.

    Some of the best fishing is on to the stretch from the tide upstream to the confluence with the River Dinin.

    The ownership of the fisheries is well defined, and most of the rights are either exercised by private owners or leased to angling clubs.
