Land owner might be right, seems, if memory serves me correctly, that land owners do own stream beds in Oklahoma. Then there's the navigable business where they aren't suppose to fence off a stream that is navigable, but seems that deal isn't well defined and causes problems. For the most part, if you're in a boat and don't anchor it, or beach it, you're good...if you're hoofing it, there could be problems.
I looked into this deal several years ago for some reason or another, but Kurt might have some better information for you.
