This study investigates traditional knowledge of plants used for river fishing in local communities of North Jeolla Province, Korea. Data were collected using the participatory rural appraisal method based on interviews, informal meetings, open and group discussions, and overt observations with semi-structured questionnaires. Field investigations were conducted at 19 sites from July 2008 to April 2010. Interviews included 37 key informants (16 men and 21 women) who lived more than 50 years in the area. The average age of the informants was 83 (range = 60 to 96). The analysis recorded seven species, namely Albizia julibrissin Durazz., Juglans mandshurica Maxim., Perilla frutescens var. japonica (Hassk.) H. Hara, Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn., Persicaria hydropiper (L.) Spach, Zanthoxylum piperitum (L.) DC., and Styrax japonicus Siebold and Zucc..
