Leave.

I read your post when you first posted it and refrained from answering it until now. Please do not take this the wrong way, but get over your quandary about the new law and get back on the water. What do you think about when you are on the water? Ask yourself this question the next time you come out of the river. If you are like the majority of the fly fishing clan(me included) you are focused on the river, the rises, the seams, etc., great therapy. Therefore, getting back in the stream will get you to not dwell on your dilemma. The law is the law and if you want to impact it, you need to get involved with the right groups, TU or even your state wildlife association. I have been at our CO home for 30 days and I have fished plenty and our laws are identical to what you are facing. I do not own river access and yet I have found plenty of public access, state wildlife leased property made available for the public, and even got on a few beats of private waters legally. How? Find friends that have access and they will invite you. Most fly fisher persons enjoy a good companion. Sorry for the rant but the fact is that there is plenty of river access for us all.
Get your feet wet,

Don't make the mistake of assuming the laws in this state keep me from fishing.
I fish plenty. More than most. I know where public access is and I know what private property I can fish. I am a contributing member of USAC the Utah Stream Access Coalition and i played a role in getting the issue spotlighted on a local news program. Ive done more than most for the cause so I'm not just sitting around *****ing and doing nothing about it. I agree with most who have replied on this post. That's public water and those are public fish and I don't give a **** how much money you have. But I respect laws and don't like paying tickets and while I am honoring the "no trespassing" signs I will be fighting for stream access until this unconstutional packet of bull **** they call a law is overturned. Only a matter of time.
