Jackson River Privatization Update

Beau Beasley continues his coverage of public water access in a section of Virginia’s Jackson River, exploring two anglers’ claims that they were fishing land that “state-printed materials told them they could do so.” Beasley notes, “The landowners in this case clearly believe that they have an exclusive claim, and they might even be correct. But instead of petitioning the state and following proper channels—onerous as they often are—to recognize their claim to the river bottom, they have opted to sue individual anglers.”
