Default Government run reserve fishing

I'm deciding which stretch of which river I want to apply to fish next summer. It's exciting just planning the trip; here in N.B. we have stretches of some salmon rivers set aside for public access determined by a computerized draw each winter. Successful applicants get almost exclusive rights to fish these stretches of river (Natives may fish without restriction). I think if someone hadn't had the foresight many years ago to set up these gov't reserve stretches the average joe in N.B. would be hard pressed to afford to fish salmon in these great rivers.
I'm wondering is there any such system set up in the U.S. or some of the other countries represented on this forum?

Interesting concept, are you able to apply for multiple river/stretches or only one. I am not aware of any such drawing here in the states.

I'm familiar with the New Brunswick Crown Reserve draw; there is nothing similar to my knowledge in the U.S.

You can only apply for one stretch in the main draw but if some stretches are not taken you can purchase them shortly before the open dates up to a maximum of two trips per month. These are prime salmon pools with very little fishing pressure because the number of rods per day on each stretch is limited to 2,4, or 6 depending on the stretch of river and the stretches are as long as 10 or more miles.

Correct vis a vis the US; in the UK where most rivers have private bank ownership, you get close to that. Land owner(s) will only allow so many rods 'on a given Beat,' at a given point in time (and you can pay up handsomely for the privilege!). One exception may be developing on that with (some) rivers in Virginia. Appears many of the original 'Land Grants' from the then King included/stated 'all rights to fishing.' This is presently floating through their Court System.

I'm with you there; however the Restigouche watershed (and some of the Miramichi) here is mostly held privately and fished by celebrities etc. The "Crown reserve" simply means some great fishing water is set aside for the provincial public at a modest fee granted through a gov't run draw system. The campsites/cabins are now being looked after by local salmon associations.

Interesting, and it sounds like a decent program. The rivers here in Washington are so full of fishermen it's a battlefield most of the time.
