Do guides at Lake Fork expect a tip? If so how much?

I wouldn't say they expect a tip. But if you're happy with the service I usually tip 100$ which I think is pretty average based on people who I know who have been with guides

I see you're new to the forum. Welcome. May I suggest some other forum topics for you? Try any of the following:

"Jerseys and Flatbills--Fishing Necessities?"
"Is the Share-a-lunker Program Killing our Big Bass?"
"I'm Taking My Father Who has Leukemia, SIDS, and only 3 Fingers Fishing Tomorrow For His Last Fishing Trip on Lake X..."
"Should Public Waters be Closed to the Public when Ike Wants to Fish Them?"
"Why Did TPWD Kill All of the Grass on [insert lake name]"

These are some good starter topics. Enjoy!

This might be oversimplifying it, but, I say tip if you feel like the guide deserves a tip.
If not, keep that $100 in your pocket.
I had a HORRIBLE day on Fork with a guide...ie...he was late, hung over, on his phone all morning etc. My buddy still tipped him $50....I couldn't believe it.
Oh, Joe Ford, in case you're wondering.

You can just ask them if he expects a tip.
