: What I have gleaned from speaking to the Ga. DNR is that
: whoever ownes the land up to the water's edge also ownes
: the streambed to the centerline of the same waterway.
: This law applies throughout Ga. on any non-navigable
: (read non-commercial) waterway ie..ALL OF OUR TROUT

Don't take this to mean that you can wade to the centerline of streams that are bordered by forest service roads and are otherwise posted. Property owners did not grant right-of-way for a number of these roads and, therefore, own to the center of the road. The best rule: If it's posted, stay off unless you get permission.

BTW, also applies to some of the state highways in North GA.
