I agree not to approach anyone who is not wearing a Lease Members Permit. The Landowner maintains full control of his property and he may grant access to private guests.

Do not order someone to leave the Lease/River, or harass anyone on the property or river. Contact the Lease Owner or V.P. of Fisheries if you have concerns about the activities of anybody that does not seem to have authorization to be on the property.

By law, the riverbed and bank half-way up to the high water mark is a public right-of-way; everyone has a right to be in the river the same way as a public highway. Do not trespass on adjacent property. To ensure that you are not trespassing, keep a boot in the water at all times.
