Mojo: Thanks for posting that article, it was very interesting. Doesn't sound like the battle has been totally lost.

I think Frank is misinformed about Colorado access. Idaho and Montana, yes. But Colorado has the worst stream access laws of the 50 states, and as rich landowners massage the legislature, it's possible that it will get worse. I live in NW CO and I have seen access to the Yampa and Elk Rivers shrink to almost nothing as landowners and fishing companies that lease access points shut out the public.

Gary: I couldn't agree more. Wyoming is in the same situation. Have you ever gone fishing up to the Grey Reef section of the North Platte? The landowners along the river patrol the river on four wheelers and cameras. The Wyoming legislature is controlled by rich ranchers, so I don't ever see WY ever changing the water access laws to allow the public to wade below the high water mark.

This month's issue of American Angler has a very good article on the recent ruling in Utah titled "Closing the Gates", very worth while reading.
