Utah judge says streams are public assets

A Utah judge agreed Monday with anglers arguing that all rivers and streams are public waters, but he has yet to decide whether a law restricting access to them went too far.

Both sides saw hope in the ruling.

Kudos again to the Utah Stream Access Coalition for fighting the good fight.

This is great to see. We could use some of the same kind of action in Texas. The private water and land issues goes to the extreme down here. I have fished in areas where there are actually barb wire fences across the stream and posted signs, not to mention owners that take defending their "private property" very seriously.
