Submarines in Idaho?

Outside of Idaho, it’s a little known fact that lake Pend O’Reille is a government submarine test facility. Once a secret, the Navy actually created rumors of a sea monster to quell the locals who saw “something moving really fast through the water”. They’ve been testing subs here since 1942. How would you like to be fishing when this thing pops up?


The “Seajet” is only 133-feet long. One quarter scale prototype of the final stealth vessel that it represents. I’ve yet to see any subs in action, but the locals near the navel station have. Hmmm, I wonder if they give tours?
