SALTON SEA: There was a flurry of tilapia action this past week during several days of warm weather and little wind, but the bite slowed down again on Wednesday when a storm front moved through and the wind came up. Most of the fish reported before the bite shut down were smaller specimens, mostly under a pound, and all were taken on nightcrawler pieces off the state park jetty. 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).
