To me it looks like it is about 9' or 9'6" and MH to Heavy. I think it would make a good Bobber/Floating Rod. I would have it spooled with 15lb Maxima and run 12lb Leader and get ready for some Coho on the Sandy or Clack. If you fish the Columbia I would go with some heavier line like 20 and 15lb leader depending on the reel. You could try drifting with it but it looks to heavy to feel light bites. Good luck buddy. Hope ya catch some soon. Thats my thoughs.

This my 1st Coho season. I am going use my Salmon and Steelhead eggs, Spinners, Spoons, etc. I would start going right after the 1st good rain. The fish are at the mouth waiting to run up both rivers.
