What Lies Beneath Lake Iliamna?
Large, isolated lake harbors mystery, if no monster
Large, isolated Lake Iliamna is certainly big enough to hold monsters, or monster-sized fish. But so far, all researchers have netted are tall tales. Do you know something they don't?
Science writer Matt Bille writes about cryptozoology, the study of newly discovered, rediscovered, or unconfirmed animal species. In this excerpt from his upcoming book, Shadows of Existence, Bille probes stories of large fish (or some other creature?) that some have reported seeing in Lake Iliamna, near the base of the Alaska Peninsula.
One of his goals in publishing such stories, says Bille, is to add to his own fishing trip -- for information. If you have something to add, the author welcomes input (his e-mail is at the end of the story).
