SALTON SEA: Very slow fishing. The tilapia bite is pretty much over until the water starts to cool in the fall. There have not been any anglers at the state park jetty in the past week, and the few showing up then did not get many fish and those caught have been dinks. Air temperatures have been up to 115 this past week, and there is still a serious fly problem. The park entrance fee is $5 with self-registration. The water has dropped so much that launching was 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. Volunteers are needed to work in the visitor center. They get free camping and hookups. 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).
