Few corvina are being taken by boaters or shore fishermen as millions of small tilapia are still visible around the edge of the Salton Sea.
Pelicans, cormorants, grebes, terns, gulls, herons, ospreys, bitterns and egrets continue to pound the small fish from sunup to sundown.
Salton Sea guide Ray Garnett thinks the corvina have so much food in front of them they just aren't interested in fishermen's offerings. He continues to catch a few corvina around the Red Hill area trolling Thin Fins.
At the north end of the Salton Sea Steve Horvitz, California State Parks superintendent for the Salton Sea sector, reports fishing is much the same.
Varner Harbor will be undergoing major remodeling starting the second or third week in October as the boat ramp is upgraded along with the building of new bulkheads and an interpretive promenade. The launching facilities will be closed during the renovation.
