Full Description of event/sighting: My brother, father and I were fishing at a place called Dillon Dam. We have fished in this area our entire lives and know the area very well. I am not exactly sure what time it was, but it was around 10:00 p.m. All three of us were sitting by the water's edge with our fishing poles in the water. There were no stars or moon that evening so it was pitch black out and we were using a Coleman lantern for our light. These lights work great, but the one problem is it is so bright, it does limit your night vision beyond the area it illuminates. The area where we were fishing is a small bay. I had fished this area for decades and had even waded in it once because a fish had pulled my pole in. As I had waded in it, I know the water is only about 3-4 feet deep throughout most of this bay (we fish for carp -not to eat, just for fun).

Anyway, suddenly, right in front of us, it sounded as if something "huge" was coming out of the water. Later when we talked about it, my brother mentioned something as big as a house, but that was just because that was the biggest thing he could think of. It sounded as if an aircraft carrier was emerging from the water. You could sense it rising up out of the water, but we could not see it. You could also hear the water falling back down off of the object, back to the lake.

No one said a word, but instinctively, we all rushed backwards about 15 yards or so. My brother is a guy who fancy's himself a Daniel Boone type guy. He is an avid outdoorsman and hunter. I have never in my life seen him scared of anything. Standing there, I looked over at him as we stood there, and he was standing there with his pistol pointed to the water. I did not even know he had a pistol. But again, no words were said, we were sitting there and something absolutely huge came out of the water, without a word, we all rushed backwards, I looked over at my brother and he was pointing a gun at the water.

The water rushed down off of the unseen object. You could tell the object was rising due to the sound of the water falling back to the lake. We stood there, totally scared to death for a few minutes, never heard a sound, no animals, no birds, nothing. Without our poles we rushed to the car and left. We left our tackle-box, poles, light, everything. I tried to talk about it, but after a few minutes of just absolute atonement, my father and brother said they never wanted this mentioned again.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
