Instream Flow/Xstream Angler

Instream flow refers to water flowing in streams. An instream flow water right refers to the legal means to protect water in streams for the benefit of fish based on the same laws used for other kinds of water rights.
Xstream Angler
The X-Stream Angler program was created to encourage anglers and anyone else who values flowing waters to seek out the many popular, and not so popular, streams where instream flow water rights have been obtained over the past quarter century to protect fisheries.
