: :Jack, are you talking about property owners
: chasing fishermen off their land or out of the
: river or what exactly? I respect property rights
: & if I accidentally trod upon such ground would
: apologize & leave. However if i enter the river at
: public access, i THINK i have a right to stay in
: it or on it wherever it goes, without trespassing.
: Doesn't anyone know exactly what laws apply?
: The question of navigability aside, could someone
: up there persuade the local district atty to
: find out what laws control these situations? Then
: fishermen and all law enforcement officers in the
: district could be notified exactly what is a
: violation and what is not, so we'd all know our
: rights instead of guessing and unnecessarily
: risking confrontations and bad arrests. Couldn't
: Ga fishermen also persuade the state that if the
: a river is stocked or otherwise looked after at
: public expense, the public must not be excluded?
: I want to fish, not fight, but I would contribute
: to a legitimate cause to establish public rights.
