SALTON SEA: The tilapia action has broken pretty much wide open in the past week with very good action. Most of the fish are running a pound-plus, and catches of 20 to 30 fish have been common. Light fishing pressure. Wind has been the only thing that has lulled the action. The only reports have been from the state park jetty, and the bite has been all on nightcrawlers. 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).
