SALTON SEA: The tilapia bite is starting to break open with a good bite off the state park jetty on nightcrawler pieces. Few reports from other areas. Most of the fish are smaller, under a pound, but they are showing in pretty good numbers and the warm weather forecast for the weekend should make this bite even better. Kayak rentals are available at the state park headquarters. The park entrance fee is $5 with self-registration. Dredging at the state park launch ramp was stopped before completion because of bird nesting season, so the ramp may be closed this year (the only ramp currently on the sea). 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).
