The tilapia bite has been in the tank for two weeks now the fishing pressure has dropped to nearly nothing. There was no one fish at the state park jetty Wednesday and only one angler at the Yacht Club. The few fish reported have been hand-sized or smaller fish on nightcrawler pieces. Air temperatures have been 115 degrees and the flies so bad you can’t open your mouth. 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).

The tilapia bite has been very tough for the past two weeks. The temperatures have been up to 116 degrees with humidity in the past week, so fishing pressure is light. The few anglers fishing have only managed to get a few small tilapia. A month ago, a day’s fishing would result in 40 to 80 fish per angler, with some quality fish in that bite. Now, a hard day of fishing has only resulted in six to 10 small fish. The bite is still best on nightcrawler pieces or red worms. All the reports are from the state park jetty area or the old Salton Sea Yacht Club jetty. This is also now the “can’t open your mouth fly season,” so insect repellant is a must. 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).
