Ken,

Property owners adjacent to the beach weren't just given shell fishing rights, they were granted ownership of the tidelands themselves and are taxed accordingly.

There is no set rule. Some beaches are privately owned and some aren't. Those waterfront property owners pay a much greater amount in taxes for the priviledge of living on the water than the rest of us do.

It's not a matter of RCW, the property owners have ownership through deeds. Property ownership is a Constitutional issue. Everyone does not have a right to limited access to a private beach just as everyone has no right to access a plot of private forest land.

It's not a matter of if it's right or if it's wrong. It's just the way it is!
