Fishing report: Corvina bites spotty

August 10, 2001|By AL KALIN, Special to this newspaper

Green water still lingers at the south end of the Salton Sea and fishermen launching from Red Hill Marina have had little success catching corvina. A few fish have been reported caught north of Red Hill near the basketball courts.

Fishing is slow from Riviera Keys north to the avenues.

Fishermen are still catching corvina from the old Niland landing and points north. This includes the jetty at Bombay Beach, Salt Creek, Corvina Beach and up to Varner Harbor at the Salton Sea Recreational Area. Large numbers of croaker are being taken from the jetty.

Salton Sea water temperature is 90 degrees and the elevation has dropped to 227.83 feet below sea level.

For those interested in tuna fishing, now is the time to book a trip out of one the San Diego landings. Albacore and bluefin tuna are being caught in large numbers, as are yellowtail.
