New Mexico Stream Access Coalition - 2016

For the past 50 years, New Mexicans have slowly been shut out of some sections of the streams and rivers that are rightfully theirs to recreate on. Prior law stated that the streams and rivers of New Mexico were open for fishing and boating. But with the signing of the Steam Access Bill into law, the governor officially closed some sections of the public waters open for recreation. The ACA supports the New Mexico Stream Access Coalition and their petition to Governor Martinez to repeal the Stream Access Bill. 


Reconsider bills that would limit access to New Mexican rivers and streams 

2015 New Mexico Senate Bill 226 proposes amending section 17-4-7 New Mexico Statutes Annotated 1978, which would redefine the ownership of New Mexico stream beds and restrict public access to these  resources. ACA contacted New Mexico Senators to express our opposition to this bill.
