River access restrictions (new legal ruling)

A judge in Loosiana declared that 'pleasure' boating (this MUST include kayaking in the Missisippi river is criminal trespass: does this mean the waterways access fight is starting once again?

That ruling will be quickly overturned. Lots of powerful people are fishermen.

Sounds like an opinionated ruling by a renegade judge. He's just a district court though, and the court of appeals will likely shoot him down. I'm not a lawyer, but I'm sure there is plenty of case law going back hundreds of years that favors recreational access.
