Guided Trips
There are several reasons to consider a guided trip. You want to focus on fishing, photography or just relaxing, and leave the details to someone else. You're taking a youth group or family in and want someone who knows the territory and is trained to act quickly in a crisis. You're not familiar with canoeing, don't have the equipment, and want someone with both expertise and equipment. You're mainly interested in fishing and want someone who knows where the fish are, what bait to use under what circumstances, and has the equipment and can teach you to use it. You want to learn as much as possible about the Boundary Waters and want someone who can sit around a campfire each night or during meals three times a day and fill you in.  
  Whatever your reason, there are guides available. The usual rate is $180 or so per person per day. There are independents, but most guides work for or through the major outfitting services. However, there is a gradual attrition among guides. The older generation is retiring, and there are not enough younger ones coming up to fill the gap. So you must make arrangements early. There is no such thing as finding a guide on short notice. The better ones are booked up from year to year by the same people.
