I believe it's legal as long as it's a NAVIGABLE river and you aren't in city limits. The birds also to be flying between the banks, and if they fall on private property you have to get permission to retrieve them.
Yea, and goodluck deterimining what is navigable. Probably follow Pred's advice and ask DNR directly about the specific stretch you want to hunt. We have a White Lick Creek near me, great to fish, but designated non navigable, and most of the owners will hassle you even if your floating, so unfortunatlely I just stay out of it.
I believe the non navigable streams are still open to float if you can gain access at a public site. But you can't get out to wade or walk on the shore if your bird hits the ground on private property, then you would need permission to retrieve.
