UPDATED: An Upstream Battle


UPDATE: The New Mexico Supreme Court has agreed that a Game Commission rule which had allowed landowners to restrict access to water flowing through private property is unconstitutional.  The ruling in the stream access case represents a victory for kayaking and fishing groups seeking to preserve public access to the state’s waterways and a defeat for landowners who saw the rule as key to protecting private property rights.

The New Mexico Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments this morning in a case that will likely determine the constitutionality of a State Game Commission rule that certifies waterway segments as off-limits to the public.
