A former gravel quarry, Easter Balado is just a hop away from Kinross Fishery. A single loch about 7 acers Balado is roughly rectangular with flat, well maintained clear banks proving good clearance for a back cast when you need a bit of distance.
Stocked with quality full finned rainbows it also holds some nice brownies that have grown on from wild stock from the South Queich which feeds its clear water into the fishery.
It is a good top of the water fishery when the weather warms up although on the day I visited at the start of April there were quite a few risng to a tiny black buzzer. I was told it isn't really a buzzer water. Lures work off course, Dawl Bach, Hoopers, cul de canard, klinkhammers will all do well. They recon a floating line is all you need with varying length leaders to get a bit of depth if needed.
