Lower Desert Waters, May 9 Ed

SALTON SEA: The tilapia bite remains good to excellent with the action only lulled during high winds. Catches of 25 to 200 tilapia remain the norm with the majority from one to two pounds. The action is still exclusively on red worms or nightcrawler pieces, and all the reports are from the state park jetty area. Flies are already a problem, so bring insect repellant. Kayak rentals are available at the state park headquarters. Boat launch fee is $3 and the park entrance fee is $5, both with a self-registration. The state park launch is available 24-hours a day and is currently the only boat launch on the sea. The camp store is open Friday through Sunday and has bait and basic fishing gear. Volunteers are needed to work in the visitor center and camp store. They get free camping and hookups. 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).
