River Public Access Law Paper

To All,

River Public Access Law Paper – attached

Additionally – in California – the Coastal Act (applies to all rivers and streams that are navigable – can use craft or legs to navigate) – allows for public access to all such rivers and streams – confined to the high flow mark.

Though access across private property may be limited.

Then there are Waters of the US – to which this paper applies to.
