SALTON SEA: The tilapia bite is still very slow in spite of the continued warm weather. The nights are still cool, keeping the water temperatures down, so the bite hasn’t broken open yet. One family fished all day and evening last Friday and landed only two small tilapia. Weekend anglers fared even poorer. As soon as this bite takes off, the news will be posted here and on the Outdoor News Service Facebook page. Anglers can also call the state park to get the latest information. 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).
