Its more a function of how far you need to cast, how big the fish get in your waters and how big of fly you want to cast. My Pieroway Renegade 10.5' 6wt works great for smaller rivers like the Ronde and the upper Salmon where the A run fish are usually between 5 and 8 pounds. I've also used my Meiser 11'7" #5 in the same waters and had no difficulty landing fish.
