SALTON SEA: There was a fairly busy weekend with anglers fishing the state park jetty, but the tilapia bite remains dismal. The cool nights have kept the water temperatures a little cool and the bite just hasn’t kicked off yet. Most Sea veterans think it will just be a matter of a few more warm days before the action breaks wide open. 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).
