Working at Lakota was probably one of the best experiences in my life. They run the Colorado, Eagle, and Arkansas. Lots of variety, and higher-end clientele (sometimes) = decent tips. Very solid instructors, management, and guides.

Added: Lakota River Guides, Raft Guide Training and Rescue Courses

or you could come down to the Rio Grande and see some real Cultural interaction as we do the daily drive through Espanola....

(lets see... camping (with toilets and showers) underneath cottonwoods and carrying your boat 50' to the browns put in or driving a schoolbus @ an hour and a half (each way) to the box put-in....hmmm...)

then again a busy day on the Rio is @ 20-40 boats total, not McRafting with @ 20 boats per minute....

Don't rule out the Taylor River. Quick trips, short drives, good pay and water until september. Also no crowds and Gunni or C.B. are both great towns.

Do yourself a favor and go to Cali or West Virginia for the summer. Colorado sucks for guiding. There are a shit load of good runs here, but not for guiding.
Don't listen to cheese, after a week on the lower Animas you'll go postal. I vomit a little in my mouth just watching the customers unload at the 32nd street put-in. The chances of you guiding on the Upper A your first year are slim to none and mild to wild lines their boats throught the best rapid on the Piedra. If you have to stay here go to the Ark.

if you are going to the ark i would recomend ava or timberline. both companies run a ton of class V. both are located across the street from the put in for pine creek. if you are looking to get some good kayaking in that is the place to be. if you are looking for a party then river runners, pt, buff joes etc. are good options.
