Thanks guys!


Yes, as long as you are over water and not touching anything manmade that would be considered property (driveway, lowhead dam, etc) you’re good to go.

Sweet, Thank you! That relieves some stress, some of these central MN streams log hopping is the only way fish them.

In Wisconsin, on private land without stream bank easements, you are allowed to temporarily leave the stream to get around obstacles like fallen trees, or dangerous spots for wading. But you must immediately return to the water after the obstacle.
