The Utah Supreme Court docket handed a serious victory to anglers and advocates of recreation on the Weber River Tuesday.
The courtroom dominated a one-mile stretch of the river a “navigable water” since individuals often used it to drift railroad ties and mine timbers across the time of statehood. Which means anglers, tubers and boaters can stroll on the riverbed, even the place the water flows via non-public property.
“Our rivers are a part of our heritage, and have been helpful to all Utahans since statehood,” mentioned Utah Stream Entry Coalition president Kris Olson in an emailed assertion. “They’re ‘items of windfall,’ our pure useful resource, and now within the case of this stretch of the Weber, secured for future generations.”
