While on vacation, I was exploring little lakes to take my canoe on. I came across a lake that had a little creek that went from the dirt road to this secluded lake about 100 yards away. The creek was really only about as wide as my canoe. It was almost more like a flooding except this is a watershed area with creeks all connecting lakes. The problem is, there's a sign right at the road where I would put the canoe in that says private property, tresspassers will be prosecuted. The guy planted it in the creek where a person would put their boat in. It might take some poling to get through the thicker vegetation to get out to the lake. I checked property ownership for this area on -line and it looks like one person owns this section, but not the whole lake (there are other owners with property on the lake). So, is it legal for me to cross his property if I stay in this wet area?
