all navatagble rivers are governed by the army corps of engineers.
the key word is navatagble even if it cuts through private property.
the land owner cant do squat if you are on the river.
a lot of small streams that you cant navagate might still be listed by the corps as being in this catagory due to the fact that when initially surveyed said streams fell in that class.
the corps does not have the resources to continually update all waterways so i would check with them.

Regardless, I doubt they would care.
You are correct sir. Corps Of Engineers. martin
