The Lochsa aint much of a commercial venue. The season is over by the 4th of july. Maybe a couple months of weekend traffic. I don't believe that any guide company really hires more then a hand full of new people a year. I have rarely seen more than a dozen commercial boats floating paying customers on any given day. Sure there are 2 or 3 big weekends, but in general, I think a guy just might be lucky to make enough to eat the first year pushing customers down the Lochsa. You could probably make more money hunting antlers! Riggins or Banks is where its at for trying to bus people down the river for money.
