INSIDE THE HIGH WATER MARKS. That means the banks of the river. If you're within the channel, islands, sand bars, etc., are property of the Corps of Engineers and are fair game to hunters. Do NOT assume that the foregoing means that, in situations where the water is high, you can traverse onto private ground (outside the top of the banks) based on the fact that water is running over it. While you can legally traverse it in your boat, any anchor, decoy line, etc., that touches the underlying soil, any tying off to a tree or a bank, etc., is a trespass. Stay inside the banks, you'll be just fine. There are LOTS of monster islands out there that are fair game.
Smell that? Smells like sumthin died in here.
