Default Re: guides

Across the county guides cost between $175 to $425 per day. *This is more a local area variation than between guiding services in the same area. *Smokies guides are customarily at the lower end of this scale. *Silver Creek, ID runs $400+ per day for all guides. *Full fee day usually includes lunch and transportation but usually not flies, leaders or rental equipment which can be extra. *Wheather there is 1 or 2 customer can, but usually does not increase fee. *Drift boat vs wading can increase fee. *Tip can run from 0% to 25%, averaging 10 -15%. *This should not be based upon fish caught! *It should be based upon your total experience. *Hope this helps. *

ps. I am not a guide
