Congress took the states rights to river law away with the first law passed. see my sig line. Those of you that think you own river banks and beds of navigable waters do not your deeds are in error the state in which you reside owns the bed and banks of all navigable waters within it's borders as per the submerged lands act of 1953. Here in Kansas the state claims only three navigable rivers. However the Corps of Engineers has determined eighteen streams to be navigable. SCOTUS has ruled in the DANIEL BALL and MONTELLO cases that any waters that can be navigated by small craft to be legally navigable thus owned by the state and public. Do some research people and stand up for your rights.
