Meet Ucatchem’s Lake Ray Roberts Fishing Guides

Our Lake Ray Roberts fishing guides are headed by Ucatchem Guide Service owner, Jim Walling, who has been a full-time Lake Ray Roberts Fishing Guide since the lake opened to boats in 1990. He is joined by a fine group of professional fishing guides who know every stump, bump and hiding place for slab Crappie, Trophy Largemouth Bass, Trophy Striped Bass, stringers of White Bass, and Blue and Channel Catfish. Their mission is putting you on the fish you’re looking for while providing a fun outing for you, your family, company or group.

Jim Walling

At the age of 5, Jim was hooked on fishing! His Grandparents introduced him to fishing with a cane pole on a creek in Justin, TX. After catching 23 perch that day, it has led him to a life of fishing and helping others to get hooked on the sport! Jim spent 13 years in Denver where he became an avid fly fisherman and learned the art of fly tying. When he heard that Ray Roberts was finally going to be built, he made the decision to move back home and become a full time Guide when the lake opened to boats in 1990. Today Jim lives in Pilot Point, Texas, operating Ucatchem Lake Ray Roberts Fishing Guides, and after 26 years of thousands of Guided Trips, he knows every inch of the Lake and it’s his goal to make your Fishing Trip a Success!

Justin Wilson grew up in North Texas fishing the surrounding lakes his entire childhood. Fishing has always been a passion for Justin and he has now been a full time fishing guide for over 10 years. He and Jim have been working together since 2017 and have since partnered up to provide the best possible fishing experience available on Lake Ray Hubbard!

Justin is in the boat from daylight to dark bringing in coolers full of fish and spends a lot of time at the cleaning table. He sets the bar for hard work. Whether it’s a duck hunt or fishing trip spent with Justin, it’s sure to be memorable.

Ryan Oliver

Hello, my name is Ryan. I am a native north Texan, having almost always lived within minutes of Lake Ray Roberts. I bought my first bass boat when I was 15 years old, and have spent the last 25 years learning to catch all types of fish. I’ve been a licensed guide with Ucatchem’ Guide Service since 2019. I love all kinds of fishing including white bass and crappie, but my favorite type is largemouth bass fishing. I am a full time worship pastor at Rock Creek Church in Prosper, TX, but most of my spare time is spent at the Lake. I love putting people on fish, but even more, I really love getting to teach people how to be more successful at fishing. I have a 19.5′ Legend bass boat with some of the latest technology in fishing electronics. I look forward to meeting you and giving you a fishing experience that you will remember for many years to come.
