Ruby River Stream Access Victory

[ 07/01/2016 ]  7/1/2016 PLWA, once again, has been victorious in the battle for the public's stream access on the Ruby River, from the Seyler Lane Bridge, likely the original stagecoach route from Salt Lake City, north to Virginia City and Helena. It has been over a decade that PLWA (formerly known as PLAAI) has been involved in a lawsuit over public access to the Ruby River from Seyler Lane and the Seyler Bridge, a public prescriptive easement right-of-way in Madison County. In PLWA's January 2014 victory, the Montana Supreme Court reaffirmed Montana's Stream Access Law, clarifying that the public may use the entirety of the public prescriptive easement right-of-way for all lawful public purposes.   more

Montana State Public Trust Lands History

[ 12/20/2016 ]  In the quieter months of winter and as the controversy over State land management and recreational access rears its head again, we thought our members might like to be equipped with the State lands management and access background.
