As long as you access it from a public spot like the bridge outside of Ennis you can wade upstream as far as you want. The stream access law also allows you to move outside of the high water mark to navigate around obstacles like fences.
old thread
question: i thought the rule was different for spring creeks? they can be owned and passage restricted/stopped? one cant walk into depuy from the yellowstone right?
