I beg to differ with you guys! I am a landowner along the platte in Morrill county. The Platte is designated a navigatable stream. The landowner does not own the water or the land under the river unless his property goes to the middle of the main channel or he crosses the channels and owns both sides.
Technically you cannot prevent any tresspassing as long as the person stays in the channel.
A lot of land along the Platte is "Accretion" property which means you never really hold clear title to the property.,
You could legally float or walk the water channels of the river and not be in violation of any tresspass laws as they stand.
