Fizz's spells scale off Ability Power - consider getting items like Zhonya's Hourglass or Banshee's Veil against teams that have high burst threat - and items like Lich Bane or Rabadon's Deathcap if you think you can survive without the Health.
Since Fizz can move through units, find opportunities in lane to walk through minions and apply Seastone Trident's passive - following it up with the ability's active attack after a few seconds.
Fizz's ultimate ability, Chum the Waters, can be aimed at an enemy or towards the area where you think they'll be going.
Try looking for flanks or other situations where Nature's Grasp is unavoidable or takes enemies by surprise.
Maokai's passive makes him extremely durable against focus fire from spells - so long as he can still basic attack something.
Saplings can be tossed into brush for empowered effect - but don't stack well.

Overall, Fizz sees a very large drop in his KDA (ratio of kills and assists to deaths) when paired with Maokai. His KDA fell from NaN to NaN. This drop shows that Maokai helps Fizz perform poorer in ranked League of Legends matches. Yet, the small difference indicates that this performance change is not very impactful.
When Fizz plays on the same team as Maokai, he gets a sizeable uptick in his full damage output. This difference may indicate that Maokai provides protection for him to deal more damage or that his participation also helps extend the game's duration. Similarly, when Fizz is played with Maokai on the same side, he usually scores many fewer killing sprees compared to when he plays without Maokai. This is contrasting evidence that he is worse when playing synergisticly with Maokai.
Additionally, when Fizz plays with Maokai on the same team, he often takes a little more damage than when he plays alone. Taking more damage could mean that Maokai does a poor job of covering Fizz in team fights.

This proves that there is not really a strong bond between Fizz and Maokai that allows them to perform not as well together than without each other.
