PESO Keep out

It depends on the jurisdiction. Yaquina River is in Oregon, so ...

Technically, it should mean the landowner has registered his "No Trespassing" 
order for the land with the appropriate local government; usually a County 
Sheriff or the Fish, Game & Wildlife department (whoever hunting regulations in 
the state).

That's rarely actually done. It's just a generic "No Trespassing" sign you can 
get for a couple of $$ at the local feed store. The wording is archaic dating 
back to legal codes from colonial times.

More fundamentally, it's a legal notice that means you can't sue the landowner 
if you trespass on that rickety bridge, fall through and hurt yourself.
