I didn't see a proper forum for this, so I'll post it here:
Judge sides with state in Pa. fishing access case
A section of the Little Juniata River on which an exclusive fishing club operates belongs to the state, and the club cannot prevent anglers and others from using it, a judge ruled.
The river had historically been considered navigable for commerce and in 1794 was declared a public highway by the state, meaning the public has access, according to an opinion by Huntingdon County Judge Stewart L. Kurtz dated Monday.
The Spring Ridge Club contended that it had a right to post a 1.3-mile section of the river as off-limits. The Little Juniata is one of the state's better-known trout waters, having recovered from severe pollution problems before the Clean Water Act.
According to a club brochure, a membership deposit costs about $90,000 and annual dues for a legacy membership are listed at "under $5,000." The club also has access to other waters whose ownership and privacy are not in dispute.

I'm glad justice was done. Unfortunately, Donny Beaver (owner of the fishing club) is trying to privatize public water in several other areas of PA and now in OH. Hopefully this will be the beginning of the end for his "clubs."
