Hi...


According to the www.recordonline.com, a State Supreme Court Judge says a canoeist has the right to paddle down an Adirondack stream crossing private land, and has ordered the landowner to stop posting signs denying paddlers access to the waterway.

The State DEC sided with the canoeist in the case, stating the stream is navigable and thus paddlers had the legal right to use it. The stream is in a wilderness-canoeing area.
:D

I'll add one caveat...

In NYS, property lines extend to the midline of streets and streams. Something about the way the Dutch used to tax. Anywho, if the public is allowed on the waterway, that portion of the property should not be taxed.

Disclosure: I live on a navigable creek and I want my property taxes reduced

LOL, Water use/property laws really are that archaic, convoluted, and confusing.

As a kayaker and fisherman Iím always happy when we ďwinĒ water use battles. However, I can certainly sympathize with many of the landownerís concerns.

Iím still not sure if Iím trespassing here in my home state of Ohio (not to mention other states) when wading on a streambed that is private property. Iíve been asked to leave by landowners, and Iíve always complied. Most are just concerned about trash and vandalism, and actually apologize for asking me to not fish the stream. On other occasions, Iíve been ďaskedĒ by law enforcement and wildlife officers to not float particular areas where Iím fairly certain it is legal. Even they were not 100% clear on the laws, but always seem to default to landowner rights.
