Welcome to River Run Outfitters

River Run Outfitters is a full line fly fishing shop located in Branson on Highway 165, about 1/2 mile north of the Dam and some of the best wading area.  Branson, one of the countries favorite family entertainment destinations, is approximately 40 miles south of Springfield, MO, on Highway 65. Branson sits on the banks of Lake Taneycomo, which is one of the premier trout fishing lakes in the midwest and ranks among the top trout fishing spots in the entire U.S.

River Run Outfitters is owned and operated by Stan and Carolyn Parker, each of whom have fished the area lakes and rivers for over 40 years. Customer satisfaction is the most important thing we have to offer. Well, that and one of the best varieties of fly fishing equipment for both the fisher man and woman.  With manufacturers such as Orvis, Temple Fork, Galvan,  Ross, Waterworks-Lamson,  Korkers, Winston, Fishpond, and many more, you will find products which are serviceable, and that will do the job.  River Run also carries a wide line of fly tying materials, gifts, and many functional accessories, as well as the just “gotta have” items for the fly fisher.

We offer both wade and Western-Style drift boat guide trips.  The Western-Style drift boats are used on the waters out west as they are specifically designed for fly fishing.  Comfort, support, and a great drift!

HOURS: – 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. seven days a week.

Check under Schools/Classes for the schedule of our Winter fly tying clinics.  Come Spring, we will again offer full day Women’s Fly Fishing Clinics, as well as Open Fly Fishing Clinics.  We are always excited about sharing our knowledge of fly tying and fly fishing with other people.  It is such a relaxing, beautiful, and fun sport.
