Private Land Public Access Crisis

More and more land is being grabbed by wealthy individuals in this country and then locked up, preventing public access to many fisheries that at one time were open to fishing. How do we preserve fishing access while also recognizing private property rights? Does the fishing revenue supplied to many rural communities outweigh private interests in denying access to fishing waters? Is environmental capitalism the answer to reopen closed fishing waters? Any ideas are welcome.
