An outboard motor-powered fishing boat used by commercial fisherman on the newly formed Bui Lake. The Ewe families who fished the waters of the Black Volta River in this area before Bui Dam was built fished from small canoes. Those small boats are unsafe on the lake formed by Bui Dam because of the lake's unpredictable winds and waves. Fishing on the lake therefore requires access to capital that many local fishermen lack. Trees inundated by the rising lake waters are visible in the background. Two photos. Bui Lake, near Bongase, June, 2016.
View to the south on the old Bongase road, Banda hills to the right, roughly 3 km southwest of Bongase. The low area (ahead in the road) was inundated by flood waters as the lake formed behind Bui Dam after 2012. A bypass has been constructed and the road here now passable only by a narrow foot bridge. 18 June, 2016.
