I agree with the farmers that they should not be taxed on soil they can not use. Buy them out..do not tax them.
That being said, god put the water on earth for use and enjoyment. Stop with these 100 year old rules. All water should be open to fishing and recreation. Open all lakes to public use. Compensate the land owners with funds gather from fishermen and hunters. Add a buck or two per license and dedicate those funds to compensate the farmers. Thank you.

Natural bodies of water should remain open to the public. This bill would privatize what was previously a public resource. The proposed legislation is a simplistic solution to a complicated problem and should be defeated.

I live in Iowa. Only lakes I fish are non-meandered lakes. If land owners post areas I fish I probably will never get a South Dakota license again. No more food sales to me. No gas, motel rooms, etc.
