PLWA Annual Meeting Covered in Flathead Beacon
"Out Of Bounds" By Rob Breeding, 05-07-14

Last week I joined in a celebration at the headwaters of the Missouri River. There, at Headwaters State Park, where the Mighty Mo' begins, supporters of Montana's Stream Access Law celebrated their latest victory: the Montana Supreme Court's decision to overturn a District Court ruling that prevented access to the Ruby River.
The celebration followed a morning meeting in Bozeman of the Montana-based Public Land/Water Access Association, commonly known as PLWA. It was PLWA that fought the battle down on the Ruby. It's useful to remember that case is still being sorted out. The Supreme Court ruled that anglers can use the full width of a prescriptive easement at bridge crossings for stream access, but sent the case back to the lower court to determine what the width will be.
It was a great victory for anglers. Click below to read more.
