Default Re: Leader recommendation for 15-20lb Mi river Salmon

A lot will depend on what stretch of water you're on. I have not fished the Betsie, but on the Big Manistee there are stretches of slower water where I land fish with 10 or 12 pound leaders, and stretches where I land maybe 10 percent on the same leader, fishing from shore and can't put the brakes on them.

The only disadvantage to heavier leaders is spooking fish if the water is clear.
