I'm new to the sport, so my opinion may not mean much, but I fish an 8'6 5wt and wouldn't change it for anything. I may get a 7'6 3wt for smaller streams, but my 5wt hasn't let me down yet. I've yet to land a "big" fish on it, but I've caught some 15-16 inchers on it with no problems at all.

I think a 4 or 5 weight in the 8'-8 1/2' length will do the job. You can always put a 4 weight line on the 5 wt. rod if you want a little lighter feel. Sorry to hear about the loss. Good luck with the new set up.

I own 2 thru 6 weight rods for trout. IMO the 8 1/2 to 9' 5 weights are the best all-around rods.

I am by far not an expert because I am pretty new at all this but I feel a 5wt will give you more options.

I agree with the 5wt. Double taper for trout, wheight forward for smallies.

For rivers the size you're used to fishing a 5 or 6 weight 10 foot rod or longer. A 4 weight is fine as long as it's not windy, but your casts may end up short.
You don't want a double taper for big rivers. You want a weight forward.
