I fished Deckers last summer (hadn't fished there in 15 years+) and I have to admit my disappointment in meeting some pretty rude fishermen?. I kinda got this treatment sometimes when I skied the front range(mostly from transplants I surmised) and if you weren't a local or buying something, well... I did run into a local guide hanging out who gave me a fly he had great success with but besides that I might as well been on Mars. As an ex-Coloradan I recall an old Eagles tune about the 'Last Resort.' Most of the old 'Natives' were a pretty friendly lot and outgoing which changed it seemed with the influx of outsiders in the 80's & 90's-that's subjective...
