Default Re: So, what is the usual tip rate for a guide?

An all day walk/wade gets $80 and a half day/walk wade $40. Again, its effort not fish.

Walk wade trips get less because the guide has to put in/ haul out and clean the boat on his time.

When I fish on new water, I usually always hire a guide to help figure out how to fish it and I agree with the rates Chris has outlined above.
