“Nessie” The Flathead Lake Monster
Legend has it that “Nessie,” or Flathead Laker’s version of it’s monster, goes back decades to the earliest days of human habitation in the area. Multiple sightings continue each year, as area residents and visitors continue to spot mystery creatures on the lake’s surface. See Flathead’s “Big Fish,” a 7 1/2 foot, 181 lbs. sturgeon caught in 1955 in Flahead. “Nessie” may (or may not, some say) be the monster of the legends.
