Tandem Fly Outfitters

North Orleans Trail
Stockton MO, United States

Tandem Fly Outfitters is a full time fishing guide service & lodging service on Stockton Lake. They operate out of Branson, Missouri where fishing is spectacular year round. Captain Kris Nelson is also your guide whose number one goal is customer satisfaction. This is why Captain Kris has been able to establish a large return customer base and is the go-to guide on Stockton Lake.

Captain Kris will take you fishing on Stockton Lake which is the number 2 Walleye lake in Missouri offering year round fishing. The lake gets stocked every year with 750,000 Walleye which makes for a very productive fishery. Other species you can target include Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Crappie, and White Bass.

Fishing is done aboard a 24-foot SeaArk center console originally built in 2012 with a capacity for 6 persons. The boat is powered by a 175 HP Suzuki engine and features a wireless trolling motor for the super shallow water. There is a GPS and a fishfinder, a livewell for the bait, and all the safety equipment you might need.

Tandem Fly Outfitters provide you with fly fishing equipment and conventional rods, reels, and tackle, as well as lures and live baits. You’ll have drinks on board, and once the trip is over, they can clean and fillet your fish.
