I think some counties are taking the river bottoms out of deeds as they are transferred. Here in Townsend the landowner owns the river bottom in most cases. At least one owner I know had the river bottom removed from their deed because they thought it would limit their liabiltiy. Our County does not take the river bottom out of deeds automatically upon transfer. I don't know about Anderson County. I heard they were doing it on the Clinch but I'm not sure. So, be nice to land owners. You may be tresspassing and not know it.
