Judge will not put on hold ruling that opened Utah stream access

VR Acquisitions just might want to re-think that “Victory” Ranch name.

A 4th District judge has declined to stay his order invalidating Utah’s 2012 Public Waters Access Act, which had restricted anglers and boaters from using streams that cross privately owned ground.

The state and a major property owner along the Upper Provo asked Judge Derek Pullan to put his Nov. 4 ruling on hold pending appeal. VR Acquisitions claimed it would likely prevail before the Utah Supreme Court and that Victory Ranch, its luxury destination resort, would in the meantime face irreparable harm from trespassing anglers seeking to catch trout on the 4-mile stretch of river it owns above Jondanelle Reservoir.
