Salt River Guide Work Questions

I guide on the Arkansas and the Gauley and am looking to add some Spring guide work to my rotation so I thought I'd see about working on the Salt River next year. I'm hoping to get some recommendations on who to guide for.

It'll be my 15th year as a guide, I row and paddle, I'm a WFR, SRT, and CDL, so I'm confident that I'll be a desirable applicant. I'm looking for free camping or employee housing, good pay and tips, and full-time work. I'm willing to "break even" my first season to get my foot in the door, but need to make decent money to make this work for future years.

Any experience as a guide or client on the Salt, tips on where to live and who to work for would be amazing! Thanks y'all!

Good luck. Hasn't been enough water to warrant any of the veteran guides I know going down in recent years. Most of them have worked for Salt River Rafting and a few for Wilderness Aware. I know the owners of both companies and they are good people.

GARNA’s mission is to foster stewardship of the resources of the greater Arkansas River region through education, volunteerism and experiences.

Bummer. Maybe I'll watch the flow next season and shoot from the hip if it's good. Thanks for the advice on the outfits, that's the second recommendation for WAE I've had.
