Fleas on Cayuga


Recommended Posts

Was fishing Cayuga on Sunday and couldn't believe the amount of fleas. They have been almost gone for about 3 weeks and now all of the sudden they are back with a vengeance. I don't ever remember them being around this late in the year.

Any idea what made them come back?

Ive seen these fleas come and go as the summer progresses, im not entirely sure what influences their patterns the most. i believe water temp is a big part, but water currents are an even stronger force. Fishing seneca lake and the prevailing western winds, i have found that the fleas get forced towards the east side of the lake, due to the winds. Also after a couple days of strong north winds the Watkins Glen area of the lake is loaded with them, and on the same day up by my cottage (mid-lake area) there wont be nearly as many.

This is just an opinion based on my personal experience, but i really have no factual info!
