SALTON SEA: The tilapia bite is still slow in spite of the warm weather. The nights are still cool, keeping the water temperatures down so the bite hasn’t broken open yet. Only a very few fish reported this past weekend, but there was a decent crowds of anglers at the State Park headquarters jetty so as soon as this action takes off, the word will spread. Anglers can call the state park to get the latest information. The water level is still 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).
