Judging from the picture it looks like it was shot down by the Chalet end of the lake.
The water comes up shallow there.
Myths persist about Cameron Lake. One was that it is bottomless. Another that is 1300ft deep.
Actually the deepest part is 240 ft., just out front and to the west of the train trestle.
However I did read in a book that Cameron Lake is actually the mouth of an extinct volcano.
There are supposedly underwater tunnels to Horne lake.
But it begs the question:- is there enough of the right type of food in Cam lake to support a ''monster'' (sic)?
And how long can an ancient ''monster'' live without breeding or re-generating?
I've been driving past,fishing and scuba-diving Cameron lake for 42 years.
Haven't seen a ''monster'' yet....however I have seen a lot of things that,when conditions are just right,produce some interesting effects on the surface.
Once, on a flat calm hazy overcast day I saw a Muskrat swimming away from the beach at the Chalet end.Because of the flat calm it looked a lot bigger than it actually was and the wake was quite pronounced.
Have seen similar effects with birds and otters there.
One report from old said that the ''monster'' was whale-like and had a dimpled,dished,hammered-dot skin.
This type of skin is not built for speed. Certain lure blades have this finish and it designed for one thing...to give off plenty of extra turbulence and vibrational ''noise''.
I can't see a fish-catching monster being equipped this way as the drag would be phenomenal.....but then again stranger things have happened.
Maybe there's a ''monster''..maybe there isn't.
I'll keep an open mind
