The best corvina action continues hot and heavy on the northwest side of the Salton Sea, with limits being the norm and fish up to 18 pounds common.
Fishing guide Ray Garnett reported easy limits are still being taken while trolling any color of Storm Thin-Fins in 4 feet of water from Avenue 84 north to the mouth of Whitewater River. Once a fish is hooked Garnett is stopping his boat and fishermen switch from the Thin-Fins and start casting Fish Traps with an orange belly or Swimmers in the orange/black color until the action dies down and they start trolling Thin-Fins again.
Garnett reports high winds have stirred up the nutrient rich bottom and green water algae blooms can be seen forming around the boat while he is trolling. When these conditions are found, Garnett advises to move on to the more oxygen-rich brown water.
Fishing continues to be productive from Riviera Keys to Desert Shores. Hopkins spoons jigged in 20 feet of water have been productive. As boats drift into shallower 10-foot depths, Lunker Grubs, Swimmers and Fish Traps are producing excellent results.
