The New Mexico Supreme Court ruled in an opinion yesterday that people have the constitutional right to walk or wade on the steam bed of water flowing over privately owned land in New Mexico when they fish or engage in other recreation. The opinion gave legal reasoning for a decision announced earlier this year that invalidated regulations by the state Game Commission permitting property owners to close public access to waters on their land. According to a news release, the court concluded as follows: “Walking and wading on the privately owned beds beneath public water is reasonably necessary for the enjoyment of many forms of fishing and recreation. In addition, they stressed that the public may neither trespass on privately owned land to access public water, nor trespass on privately owned land from public water.”
