SALTON SEA: The winds have kept the tilapia bite relatively slow, and the few fish being caught have been very small. The action is due to break open with warming weather, and temperatures have been over 100 this week, while the weekend is expected to cool back into the 90s. 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).
