Access to waterways crossing private land.
Authored by: cxd on Tuesday, January 22 2013 @ 04:52 PM EST

Montana is my favorite because you can access any stream from any public place. The fishing for trout is amazing. If you want to fish just be polite and you are in for a amazing time.

Oregon is my next favorite because if you can float any boat you can cross any private land. My kayak has a draft of about 10cm. Use your boat or float of choice to access your salmon spot and you are also in heaven.

Utah used to have the best law it even allowed walking on private land to avoid man made barriers in the stream. (Think barbed wire put in by farmers crossing the stream here.) However the Governor has signed a new law that makes waters much harder to access. However because over 80 percent of Utah is public land there is plenty of access.

In the Western US many states are waking up to the fact that the rain and snow that caused the river in the first place are public assets. That is the way it should be. If it is not this way rain and snow become my personal property as long as I own the land bordering the river. Sorry for the grammar. Dyslexia is a factor.
Private Property should not trump all access.
Public access to private land for water access
Access western waterways I am interested in how Europe handles these issues?
