Compared to well-known Colorado streams and rivers we definitely have fewer fishermen...but I still say that the remote headwater streams out west that would be most comparable to our mountain streams are fished even less than ours by a significant margin...

If you are fishing small streams like the ones you mentioned and not catching large numbers of fish, there is a pretty decent chance someone already fished through ahead of you and spooked the water. So, you may not see the other fishermen but they were likely through sometime earlier in the day...
