Montana Supreme Court affirms stream access

Public land access advocates are celebrating a ruling Thursday by the Montana Supreme Court upholding the state's stream access law and clarifying the public's rights to use historic rights-of-way.

In a case involving a group of roads near the Ruby River in Madison County, the high court sided with the Public Lands Access Association and against the county and an out-of-state landowner -- James Cox Kennedy, chairman of media conglomerate Cox Enterprises -- who had blocked access to the river through parts of his 3,000-acre ranch.


Now only if the anti stream access forces in Utah could get their heads out of their collective derrieres.

Suck a fat one James Cox. Why is it even possible to buy a vacation property that you visit once a year, then attempt to change long standing law from your house in Georgia in a place in which you do not reside? Focus on your local politics and leave us be.
