---|---|---|---|---|

2000 | 150 yards of 6 lb | 200 yards of 10 lb | 6 lb | 10 lb |

3000 | 170 yards of 8 lb | 240 yards of 15 lb | 8 lb | 15 lb |

### Notes

**Reel Size**: A guide to matching reel size with the type of salmon fishing (smaller sizes for lighter salmon and larger sizes for heavier species or saltwater).**Line Capacity**: Based on typical monofilament and braided line capacities. Braided lines, due to their thinner diameter, allow for higher line capacity.**Line Weight**: Indicates the recommended pound test for each line type and reel size, suitable for salmon species.

This table is a starting point for selecting reel sizes and line capacities for salmon fishing setups. If you’re using a specific brand or have a specific salmon species in mind, the requirements might vary slightly.
