I need a primer on Montana wading access laws
Hi guys (& gals) I'm really excited to be heading off to Montana for a week in early July. I have heard (always dangerous, that 2cd hand info...) that if a guy were to enter a private property stream from a public bridge / road crossing and wade fish, being careful to stay in the water, that one would be legal in Montana. I am planning to fish the XXXX river as one of my destinations and am wondering about fishing the river upstream from the public access, which appears to be all private property. So what exactly is the law ? I don't want to get shot at either. Am I safe or sorry ?
