I was fishing Brazoria NWR the other day. Followed a channel deep into marsh system. At some point stumbled into two signs sitting on each side of the channel -- "public access is prohibited". Until this day I assumed that any navigable water in Texas is open to public (with exception of military installations, etc).
So, two questions:
- is it legal to limit access this way? Signs clearly belong to that NWR
- what is behind these signs? what are they hiding from us?
