SALTON SEA: Winds have kept the tilapia bite very slow. No fish reported the past two weekends in a row. Air temperatures have been in the mid-90s this past week, which should have kicked the bite into gear but winds are forecast through the weekend again. Anglers should call ahead for an update. 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).
