SALTON SEA: Very slow. Between heat and afternoon winds, the tilapia bite has been non-existent with only a few small tilapia to 10 inches reported. The bite is still all on nightcrawler pieces, and the main jetty at the state park is the only place with any pressure. Anglers can 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).
