Mount Juliet is home to two significant rivers within its walls: the famous River Nore and its tributary, the King’s River. Both rivers have plentiful catches of salmon and wild brown trout, through the years. Fishing can be arranged from break of dawn until darkness falls: for a day, an afternoon or a few quiet hours in the evening. Lessons offer expert help for those who are less familiar with the mysteries of the rod and fly – coaching available for complete beginners.
