When a fisherman thinks of Stockton Lake, he’s hard pressed to figure out what he wants to fish for. Walleye are in good numbers and size on Stockton. White bass are abundant and can be caught almost any time of year on a windy bank. Doesn’t matter the time of year - crappie fishing is great, day or night. And Stockton attracts most of the big professional bass circuit tournaments, so you know the bass fishing is excellent. Throw in the fact this little southwest Missouri lake is quaint and has a small-town feel about it, and you might consider retiring here one day.
