I'll leave you with this, BoilermakerU - I'm not gonna say what I do for a living, I may be an attorney, I may be a judge, or I may flip burgers. In any case, you'll find few if any attorney's in this state with a good grasp of river access issues and the laws that pertain. As oldrivers mentioned, most attorneys deal with consumptive water law - that's where the money is. Truth is there isn't any money in access and use law, and as such the few attorneys with any knowledge only dabble in it. Even more shocking is the total lack of knowledge on the part of DA's and sheriffs deputies. Most have no idea whatsoever what the laws are and what is and isn't legal. I think the real issue here is education, or the lack thereof. The boating public needs to be aware of the laws and their rights as boaters so that when faced with a trespassing charge they're able to win a dismissal based upon the Actual Laws, not a conviction based upon a poorly researched, poorly written AG's OPINION.
