    River rights

    The board has been so slow lately. I'm sure a debate may ensue but without taking sides, I just thought this was a fun read about river rights:

    The story does mention some supreme court decisions that are supposed to be in effect nationally. He also mentioned how every state, town, and county will be different mostly for practical reasons. Reasons like the sheriff here hates outsiders or the park police there want the land used by everyone possible.

    Re: River rights

    In the 60s when politically correct was just a hippie fantasy, and gun control was still being invented ....

    I was camping on the banks of Charlotte Creek in NY, having a ball with the best wild brookie fishing I've ever encountered.

    There was a nice pool just upstream from the campsite, where the fish seemed to be larger than in the campground.

    I was warned not to go there, the owner took a dim view of trespassers.
    If there was someone in "his" part of the creek, he'd start shooting at "woodchucks", that always seemed to be on the other side of the creek, near the fisherman.

    Re: River rights

    The article lost me when he went down the "middle aged white men" road to perdition. Which is just a sign of lazy journalists and poor editing. But it is a big topic. Surely some people remember the big war in PA several years back about the Little J and the fishing club owner? I'm not really sure how that ended.
