The Maine trout river is a popular stream that runs from the Great Lakes to New England, and there are no regulations on the sport.
But the Maine Department of Fish and Game is taking its legal fight against the federal government to the Supreme Court, saying that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has no jurisdiction over its water quality.
In June, the agency sued the U, arguing that the federal rules governing trout streams are preempted by Maine’s constitution.
The agency argued that the constitution provides for a federal statute to govern the water quality of streams in Maine, but the Fish and Gaming Commission of Maine has jurisdiction over the stream.
“The Constitution expressly provides that the State shall have jurisdiction over all waters of the State and of the United States and all natural resources of the state and of this United States,” the lawsuit says.
The lawsuit also says that the agency cannot enforce federal regulations on state water, which means that the fish can’t fish in the stream or even swim upstream.
“In effect, the Fish & Game Commission of the federal Fish and Fish and Department of the Interior are acting as a branch of the Fish in the Water and Fisheries Administration and are effectively enforcing the rules promulgated by the Fish,” the agency said in a statement.
The fish are also facing a lawsuit from the state of Wyoming, which is seeking to halt the federal regulations and said that the Fish cannot be relied upon to regulate a river.
“It is unlawful for the Fish to promulgate or enforce a federal regulation over a river,” the states suit says.
In addition, the lawsuit accuses the Fish of using “false and misleading statements to justify its actions and actions are unlawful and arbitrary.”
The Fish and other states have a history of challenging federal regulations.
The agency said it had asked the Supreme Courts for a review of its case but has not yet received a response.
