Re: Switch rods..
Oregon coastal rivers Carl? Ask as I'm about 10 minutes from the Rogue (Tou Velle Park just north of Medford). Vis a vis the Chetco you'll find that a 7wt switch will be a great all around tool. Ditto the Windchuck.
The lower Rogue (Gold Beach) is one big river so there a 'longer stick' is recommended.
