Guided fishing trip around Hot Springs

I am looking for a 1/2 day guided fishing trip on one of the lakes around Hot Springs for my husband and 9 year old son. Just trying to get a good but not super expensive guide. Any recommendations? We will be there July 31-august 2nd, 2014. Thanks

I have had better luck fishing Lake Quachita than Hamilton or Catherine over the years, but I have not fished any of them recently, nor do I know a guide to recommend. I would start my search by asking for recommendations from the following marinas. There are a few others but I would start with these. The state parks are really reliable and you can almost always trust the park rangers' advice. So I would start with the park, and if you get nowhere, try the largest marina - Mountain Harbor, then two smaller but well known resort marinas, Crystal Springs and Brady Mountain.

For Lake Hamilton, I would call Marineland, 501-767-4141, Hot Springs Marina, 501-525-7776, or Trader Bills Outdoor Sports 501-623-8403 for suggestions.
