I'm looking to go duck hunting on the Santa Ynez river under Cachuma lake in Santa Barbara county in CA This season. The river is pretty small but not a little creek. Could I hunt on a kayak on the river. Would it be considered Navigable Water way?

I'm assuming it's private property on both sides of the river...You need a place to enter that is accessible (public) and you need a place to exit that is public...I'll call the county or DFW...You don't want the judge making this decision.

What Steve said and you need to take very controlled shots. Drop those birds into the navigable waterway.

Its private property...hence trespassing. Doubt youd get your yack in the creek before the man showed up...but, if your a gamblin man..What could go wrong?

Also...make sure you engage the landowner feature on your onx...not just the deer zone...it will save you in the long run....feeling generous tonight!!
