LOWER DESERT WATERS

SALTON SEA: Still dead slow and there is humid, withering heat. It’s looking like there simply won’t be a tilapia bite this season because the action usually slows way down by now, and this year there simply hasn’t been a bite at all. The scientists studying the sea say they have collected very few mature (catchable-sized) tilapia, but there has been a spawn because there are a lot of tiny fish. The water level is still so low that launching is impossible except for hand-launchable craft (kayaks, canoes, float tubes). 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).

LOWER DESERT WATERS

SALTON SEA: Still pretty slow tilapia fishing, and the few fish being caught have been very small. This is in spite of the really hot weather of the past week. The action should kick into gear if it is going to happen this year. 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).

LOWER DESERT WATERS

SALTON SEA: The winds and cool weather of the past week stalled the tilapia bite again. A recent survey of the tilapia population didn’t 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).
