Two miles east of Conway, about half a mile north of Highway SR-534. Sixteen is well know for exciting fishing for stocked Rainbow Trout and resident Largemouth Bass in a quiet setting.
This lake is one of only four waters in Skagit County managed with a seasonal fishing closure. Spring catch rates for trout are highest early in the season and decline as fish are harvested and as warmer water temperatures force trout to seek areas of colder refuge. Fall is often overlooked by anglers, can be an ideal time as fish that have been growing all summer become more active around the lake with cooler temperatures.
