Jesse C


Ray was friendly, incredibly knowledgeable and helpful! My brother and I caught more bass in one morning than we had all year previously. We also learned techniques on multiple lures throughout the day, by learning hands on. I would highly recommend Ray to anyone looking for a guide on Lake Wallenpaupack

We’ve been fishing with Ray for 6-7 years. He is super knowledgeable and knows how to find the fish. He’s not happy until he helps you make the catch. Highly recommend Ray! You won’t be disappointed

Dave K


My brother and I booked a 4hr trip with Ray. Overall we had a great time on the water. Fishing was a bit tough, but Ray went out of his way to make sure we had a good experience. He even extended the trip another hour free of charge to get us on more fish. I would definitely book another trip and recommend his services. Thanks for a fun morning!
