Asked by Joe Folsom, Ellijay, GA • Sat Jun 9, 2012
I have a few questions regarding the exact property line when next to a river or large creek. This property is in the state of GA and is technically a creek but large enough to float a kayak, raft or canoe. One party says the state owns 30 feet on each side of the creek because it is classified as a trout stream. The other party says their property line goes to the middle of the creek. Tax records show the property line varying (depending on the specific lot in question). Some lots show GIS in the middle of the creek while others at the waters edge and yet others about 30 feet up the shore. It is not consistent on the tax records GIS maps. I found one Attorney that says if it is navigable it is to shore line and if not navigable to center of creek (navigable defined as large enough to transport freight on a barge.....which this creek is not).
