Another of the out-of-the-way "locals" waters, Sixteen not only yields a fair crop of big imported rainbows, discerning anglers will notice a few wild cutthroat turning up in their creels, usually the result of trolling in close to the weedy shoreline.

Season: Last Saturday in April to Oct. 31.

Angler amenities: There is some shore fishing space at ramp area. Sixteen's faithful are almost always well-mannered.

Surface area: 41 acres.

In the catch: Hatchery rainbow predominate with some native cutthroat trout.

Stocking for 2008: 5,500 legal rainbows and natural sea-run cutthroat spawn.

Special rules: Season only, otherwise statewide size and bag limits apply.

Boat launch: State fish and wildlife department – gravel, handles up to small trailered craft.

Getting there: Take Highway 534 east from Interstate 5 at Conway, turn left on the gravel access road. Parking space fills quickly here.
