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.

Spot on.

But I'll throw this in, if he sucks, make it obvious to him with your tip. He needs to catch on.

(btw, I don't expect that to be an issue)

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
