SALTON SEA: A big crowd at the Salton Sea State Recreation Area this past weekend, but still no tilapia being caught — not even a few little ones. But with temperatures over 100 degrees through the work week, this bite is about to break open any day. 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).
