SALTON SEA: The winds and cool weather of the past week stalled the tilapia bite again. A recent survey of the tilapia population didnít turn up many catchable fish, but the survey was limited. The action is due to break open with warming weather, and temperatures are scheduled to be back up over 100 by the weekend. 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).
