Loch Baligill is one of the most challenging of club waters with some steep banks After it was dammed for the local water supply in the late 1970s, there were a few good years of large trout taken from 2lbs to 3.5lbs with one exceptional fish landed in the 1980s of over 8lbs (believed to be the record trout for club waters). However, it is rare to find any other entries of trout over 3lbs in the old game books and in recent years (since the 1990s) very little if any fish have been caught here, although some have been seen on warm, calm evenings. Nothing is known about the best approach to fish this loch but it is certainly one for the hardy specimen hunter and worth a cast when tied in with a trip to the very productive loch Ackridigill. Expect more blanks than productive days – catch-and-release only.
