This may not be the right place for this so I apologize in advance. I fish from the river bank mostly and was wondering about the law regarding open containers. I've never brought any alcohol with me fishing because I'm not sure if you can drink while on the river bank. My assumption would be that if your on public land that it would be against the law just like walking down the sidewalk. I'm not talking about bringing a case just a few beers for me and a friend. If anyone can tell me the law on this it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
