Until about six months ago, I was under the impression that the rivers and the right of ways were public land, then a friend was telling me that they got into some kind of legal squabble over this very issue and it was determined that the adjoining land owner actually owns the land to the center of the river, but does not own the water flowing down the river. Now I have no idea who is really right, but my thinking is the guy with a shotgun in his hands is the one I'm going to pay attention to!
