Default leader/tippet length for trout

I recently aquired a 5 ft long 3 wt fly rod that i think im going to use for trout. i know i will use it for native brookies and more then likely used it on the smaller stocked streams around here. my question is, what length of tippet and leader would i want for this rod? what about for my 8'6 rod for bigger streams, how long for that one? and for any of you who make your own leaders, what size do you start with and then to what size and then to what size, ect. and how long of each different size. hope this makes sense
