Story Time: Not near as well known as The Loch Ness Monster, Lake Iliamna has its own monster history. Over the years, legend has it that a monster exists in the lake. According to G.C. Martin, of the United States Geological Survey, Iliamna is said to be "the name of a mythical great blackfish supposed to inhabit this lake, which bites holes in the bidarkas [or an Aleutian kayak] of bad natives." [ref: U.S. Geological Survey Geographic Names Information System: Iliamna Lake]
