The Wyoming Supreme Court is set to consider whether to allow continued public fishing access to a blue-ribbon stretch of the North Platte River.
The court on Tuesday will hear arguments from private landowners appealing a district judge's ruling regarding public access to Lusby Public Fishing Area, about 20 miles southwest of Casper.
Last October's ruling gave boaters, anglers and hunters
continued access to the North Platte at the Lusby area.
The current landowners say the original easement limited the
public only to a strip of land starting at the river's high-water mark and extending 100 feet away from the river.
The Lusby area has been open to the public since 1964. The state argues that it should remain open.
