Well lemme tell ya!,,
The Salton Sea is one of the most unique, interesting and weird places I have ever been! It's history is almost unbelievable! I highly recommend you read about it's past. Most people don't even know it exists! It is also a story of ecologic tragedy. Did you know that for a long time it was THE MOST PROLIFIC FISHERY IN THE COUNTRY with an estimated fish population per square acre in the hundreds of thousands!!! About four-five years ago it was my favorite place to fish and I would trek 3hours,(one way) sometimes twice a week to fish it.
it was a fly fisherman's wet dream! An inland body of water with big, nasty, toothy, fish that would literally pull a fly rod out of your hands and grew to 30 lbs!!!! (my personal best was 26) There were legends of 40 pounders! AND ALL FROM MY TUBE!! (and later my pontoon). Aahh But its all gone now only tilapia left according to the reports. I was hoping the unusually high rain they have received down there the last two years might have changed things.But I fear not. Alas... But there have been rumours that a few locals have caught corvina and I am ready to take an exploratory trip to check it out. As soon as the weather cooperates and they get some sustained 100+ weather I think i'm down. At very least I can try some of the epic talapia fishing they have been enjoying the last 3 years.
hoping for a miracle, bodfish
PS anybody up for an adventure??
