SALTON SEA: The tilapia action was excellent much of last week, but the storm front and winds slowed the bite to just fair this week. Before the storm, most of the fish were running a pound-plus, and catches of 20 to 30 fish were common. Since the storm, catches of three or four smaller have been the norm. The only reports have been from the state park jetty, and the bite remains all on nightcrawlers. The park entrance fee is $5 with self-registration. The water is so low that launching is nearly impossible except for small boats (boaters should check with the main office at the recreation area before bringing a boat). The camp store is open Friday through Sunday. Information: Camp Store at 760-289-9455 (open Friday-Sunday). Salton Sea State Recreation Area main office at 760-393-3059, or the ranger station kiosk at 760-393-3052 (or mobile phone at 760-331-9944).
