Man records footage of 'Ogopogo' lake monster

Is there a monster lurking in the depths of Okanagan Lake ? Image Credit: CC BY-SA 1.0 Darren Kirby
A south Okanagan resident believes that he has captured evidence of the elusive creature on camera.
Jim La Rocque had been at his mother-in-law's lakefront property with his two children at the beginning of this month when he spotted something strange moving through the water.

Grabbing his camera, he filmed what looked like seven humps gliding across the surface.

La Rocque estimates that the 'creature' was at least 120ft long.

"I'd describe it as like a dragon boat race, like with oars, so if you flipped the dragon boat upside down, you would see all those oars coming out of the water," he said.

A local news report featuring the footage that he captured can be viewed below.

Whether or not it shows a large creature in the lake however remains a matter of debate.

I am in complete agreemwnt, there are definitely waves.  But those waves are in a surprisingly narrow band, and obviously travelling in single direction, as if something under the water is moving them.  Now that might be an unusual underwater current that appears without any obvious ripple harmonic, or it could be a submerged object.  As to what the object is, that is up for grabs.  As I have said before, I can see fins, but that may be an optical illusion. Could it be otters swimming in a line?  Perhaps, yes?  I don't see any heads breaching the water tho, I see fins when it is in motion.  On...

you're right, no heads breaching the surface. But also, they are in a straight line, the problem being, it is TOO straight. there is never any give - both in distance between objects, and any left-right movement. I think what is seen is one rigid object. Can't be an animal, IMO

as to clearify, i posted nickells otter / lake monster illusion picture not saying i thought this was otters i dont but i posted that picture to illustrate what we see might not be isnt the full picture of whats going on. if you go to nightwalkers post #26 look at his 2nd picture, two of the "waves" basically match too close, i dont feel like subjecting myself to watching the clip again but 3 if not 4 waves will match at a time and too closely. the spacing between waves is the same which is odd it has a "feel" to me of 4 or 5 or ? objects tied together and being pulled through the water it doe...

Logic dictates that a creature as the length of a blue whale couldn't be living in that ecosystem without myriad signs of its existence.  Even PG only gives it a 60% chance  LOL.  The only mystery is if it is a string of otters, a naturally occurring event or a leftover wake.

A terrible video but what ever it was looked like a live creature. Otters or a large fish perhaps?
