You Gotta See This Video Of The Lake Monster In McCall
When I moved to Idaho and Keke said something about a lake monster in McCall before my first 4th of July weekend here, I looked at him sideways. Turns out the legend of Sharlie might be true!
According to local legend, Sharlie is a sea serpent similar to the Loch Ness Monster that lives in Payette Lake. Sharlie was first sighted in 1920 when western settlers thought they saw a large log in the lake only to see it begin to move. The 1944 signing is when Sharlie was first described as having a dinosaur like head, humps and reptile skin. In 1946, a group of people from Nampa saw the lake monster again and said it was about 30-40 feet long and left a wake similar to a small boat.
It's been seen a handful of times in the year since, but this most recent sighting happened just a few years ago. Do you think this is really a Sharlie sighting? Have you had your own Sharlie sighting?
