The only guides who have legal access to the Dean are those connected to the few lodges that operate on the river--if you happen to find anyone else offering to guide you on a Dean River float trip they are likely operating illegally. This has been a big problem in the past and remains so today.
I'm not certain about guiding on the Babine. I do know that much of the water that gets fished is fairly remote and difficult to access. A good place to start would be the Smithers or Terrace BC Chambers of Commerce. They might be able to direct you to local tackle shops who might know about guiding operations in the area.
