The Salton Sea is a saline, endorheic rift lake located directly on the San Andreas Fault in California's Border Region. The lake occupies the lowest elevations of the Salton Sink in the Colorado Desert of Imperial and Riverside Counties in Southern California. Like Death Valley, it is located below sea level, with the current surface of the Salton Sea at 226 ft (69 m) below sea level. The deepest area of the sea is 5 ft (1.5 m) higher than the lowest point of Death Valley. The sea is fed by the New, Whitewater, and Alamo rivers, as well as a number of minor agricultural drainage systems and creeks.
The tilapia bite remains by far the best bite in the region. The fish are running from a half-pound up to nearly 3 pounds with most in the one to 11/2-pound range, and anglers are getting as many as they want. It simply doesn’t get better than this. The bite is on nightcrawler pieces fished right on the bottom, and the bigger fish are further off shore. The best source for information is the new campground store adjacent to the state park jetty. The number if 760-289-9455 and the store is open 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday and 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

The tilapia fishing remains great. The best bite is coming from nightcrawlers.
Look for one of the best weekends of the season for tilapia. Try a bobber suspended night-crawler combination.
