SALTON SEA: The tilapia action broke wide open two weekends ago and other than a slight lull during the windy, cool stretch last week, the action has remained excellent for fish averaging about a pound. Most reports are coming from the state park headquarters jetty and the nearby Salton Sea Yacht Club jetty, and the bite has been almost exclusively on small nightcrawler pieces. 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).
