because expansion/contraction of rivers, bayous keeps many private homes back from the water. My experience there is that most land owners aren't silly about paddlers.

In Georgia, we lost a key court case, and an old and restrictive definition of navigability was upheld by the state Supreme Court. On non-navigable streams, the adjacent landowner owns the land under the river to the midpoint. Landowners could exclude us, but most do not.

If you have to stop on a non-navigable stream, for any of the usual reasons, just try to do so well out of sight of any houses or cabins. Common sense.
