Rod for Clackamas, Sandy, Deschutes
I recently moved up close to the Portland area and will be fishing the Clackamas, Sandy, and occasional trips to the Deschutes.
I currently own a 13 foot 7 wt rod but was thinking about getting a lighter rod for summer and smaller steelhead and for fishing scandi floating line.
I was thinking about a Winston b2x 6/7 or a Beulah platinum 6wt 12'6".
This will be my second spey rod, I figured I could use the 7wt for larger fish, windy days, and maybe Skagit, while using the new lighter rod for floating work.
Looking for opinions if a 6wt would be a good choice or if I should drop down to a 5wt spey?
