I know rivers get hashed out alot but what about an inland lake? If a person gets in the water at a public launch can they legally wade around the public lake fishing in waste deep water in front of people's houses? I know there is no beach walking aloud like on the great lakes, but if the feet stay wet? Are private docks on inland lakes the same as navigational obstructions in rivers? For instance if wading around a public lake and a dock is errected in a manner were it gets too deep to go around and too low to go under can I legally poratge over it like a tree or deep hole in a navicable river? I kind of have my own thoughts on this but I don't know if this issue has ever been adjuticated.
