Safeguarding the future of the river Usk
How would this affect you? If you had a planned fishing trip on any river in Wales you could be faced with the situation of endless canoes and white water rafters passing in front of you. All they need is an access point on the river above you and an egress point below you. The fact that you may own or rent the water is immaterial, simply because by law they will have the right to access; therefore, they will NOT be trespassing. The rights of the canoeists/rafters will inevitably override other people’s rights.
