The judge makes a ruling, and boom, real-time case law suddenly exists. A precedent is set. Is it worth the risk? Better damn hope so. Sometimes court is the only option, but for the most part the land owner(s) will always have deeper pockets and can sustain the fight longer..... We've been dealing with this crap here in TN for a while, and basically, the only hope for anglers' rights to be protected while fishing in navigable streams is for legislation to be passed. I hope Utah's anglers can win. Those western states seem to be where a lot of controversy/case law exists, and it sure would be good to know that some douchebaggin', pretentious river-monger got his ass handed to him by some anglers.These guys know what they're doing, and they'll ultimatley end up arguing this issue in front of the same court that issued the "Conatser" decision, which defined the constitutional ambit of stream access and use in Utah.

This Utah supreme court ruled unanimously in favor of angler access in Conatser. The legialature passed a law that basically said the Conatser decision was full of shit. And now this law goes right back in the lap of the same supreme court. Nothing has altered the landscape such that the court should contradict their earlier ruling...........we hope.
