There's a stream that I really wanted to fish and last time I was down there and took a look there were no postings. Today I went to fish it the first time and it was posted. It's a small creek that flows to the road and through a culvert. The sign is about twenty feet from the road next to the creek.
What are the rules here, it's not a navigable water way. But what's the easement typically between the road bed and the private property line? I don't need much, the fish are right there at the road. Can you stand in the stream and be safe? What state agency would be best to contact about this?
I've talked with someone who's fished it in the past and from what it sounds like, the owner tries to run everyone out of there and thinks that the fish belong to him. I'm not so sure it's even private property. It just sounds like a guy trying to keep people out of there from fishing. Normally I wouldn't bother but there are some super hog rainbows in there.
