Just saw the new rules for the Skeena system include a number of restrictions for certain rivers: No guiding permitted. Curious as to what you guys' opinions are on the matter. It's amazing to see the number of guides on the coast. A couple weekends ago I could tell that about half the boats going by where guided. ("mend, mend, inside water, mend"!) I personally feel like there's a middle ground. A good guide is a huge asset for the conservation of a river. However, they really ought to limit the numbers of guides on a system to a reasonable number.
