Fishing is excellent on Lake Edward. The water is clear and you may even see the fish swimming below. Fish for northern pike, sunfish, smallmouth & largemouth bass, dogfish, bullhead, and many more. Personally we practice catch and release and encourage guests to do practice this as well. But for those who are fishing for dinner, guests have access to the fish cleaning house. Freezer space available.

Many thanks for the very relaxing and memorable stay at Shing Wako. From the comforts of cabin 10 to the fun whizzing around Lake Edward to our long hike to the delicious veggies from Borden Farm to the very enjoyable fire pit, we couldn’t have asked for more… oh and I forgot the friendly neighbors who shared their yummy freshly caught & fried sunnies & crappies with us.
