    Believe it.
    There is some in the Little Rock pool on river and there's some in Pullen Pond around Russvegas. I'm sure they're in between

    Lake Conway Alligator

    We Bowfish it all the time and have many friends who hang lines and fish at night and never seen one or heard of one seen so I'm sure it's possible but also possible it was released in there

    They are definitely in the little rock pool and have heard of them in palarm creek. Ive never seen them in lake conway but dont get on it much.

    Saw one many years ago just across the Arkansas River from Holla Bend in Flagg Pond, a huge one was caught in a ditch in the Blackwell Bottoms by Morrilton a few years ago, no reason to be surprised with one in Conway.

    Have seen the remains of one in that same area, about 13-14 years ago.

    A guy caught an octopus out of Lake Conway a couple of years ago. An alligator seems almost boring at this point. I'm waiting for a swordfish to come out of there.

    My dad died 20 years ago this coming December, and I remember him telling me about seeing a couple of gators in Lake Conway in the 1980's.

    When dad was still working AGFC they released several over here to supposedly control beavers some dumb commissioners idea. But back to the story he pulled up to the river and there were a few older black folks standing there fishing. Dad said they couldn't see the gators until they bailed out of the back of the truck off in the water. Said the old folks left poles, 5 gal bucket, and everything jumped in their car and hauled a$$!!! There are still a few around here today

    I had a big snake try to get in the boat last summer while bream fishing on lake conway, I ended that with a boat paddle. Took some pics and it was a reticulated python someone turned loose that got to big I guess. Maybe why it wasn't scared of people, but I wasn't taking any chances! It was a good 5.5 or 6 footer!
