The only pay lake I know of is peckerwood. Which is way south of you. Take em to lake Conway or I am sure you could still find a bank off the current on the AR River. Heck their is a spot in burns park you could take em too as well. In the skiing lake or next to it there is some back water. I have caught catfish, gar, soft shelled turtle, crappie, bass and even an eel. All right there in that area.
Don't know of anything up around Searcy though. Hope that helps some.

Little Red out east/south of Searcy.

In conway, the pond where the baseball fields are at-used to be the fairgrounds. That pond is plum full of eatin' size catfish. And I heard there was some trout in there too but I figure they're probably done with the heat we've been having. To my knowledge, that pond is free to fish for the kids.

Also the pond over at Westlake Apartments in conway is full of catfish.

Toad suck-on the east (Faulkner) side is out of the current and people have been catching some cats on livers and stinkbait.

What about the lake at Bald Knob? Also, how about lake barnett?
