In reply to nn Inquiry, Asnlstnnt
Attorney General Roo haH given an
opinion that an owner of land ad

to fish from tho bank whoro It runs
through or past his proporty. Ho has
tho right, Mr, Koo finds, to prevent
tropasslng on tho land. An exception
to this rulo is that on n nnvigable
stream anyone may land from a boat
or other vessel If tho nocosBity should
