I frequently over-line a rod by one or at most two weights; using an 8 wt line on a 3 wt rod might be asking for trouble. If you keep casts very sort, though, you might get by.

I have a 6.5 foot 4 weight that I've gone as high as a 6 wt line and it was fine; I only used that heavier line on very windy days, though. A 4 or 5 wt line is no problem.
