Personally, I've been free from getting prosecuted on this one.
p.s. I'm amazed at how many people don't know what runs are in CO (especially when they claim to have run them).
On the Dolores last year, a river supposedly notorious for being tough on drinkers and smokers, Ranger Rick told us, as long as you're not messing around, I'm not gonna mess with you. The implication was that he could be a dick if he wanted to. I've heard the same from a Westwater ranger, a Deso/ Gray (both Utah, but still) ranger, and a town cop in Durango.
They are not going out of their way to enforce it, but it does tip the scales more in their favor if you are bothering them. The Deso ranger said he takes beer away all the time because people are being assholes. Fortunately he just offered to haul the trash we had accumulated so far out with him.
