Prefered single hander for Gaspe in June - 8wt or 9wt?

Thinking about building a new rod (Winston BIIX) for an early/mid June trip that I have booked on the York and Dartmouth.
Last fall my favourite 8wt bit the dust. It was fine for handling fall fish up to around 20lbs, didn't hook anything larger.
I'm wondering if bright, big (20-30lbs) June fish might warrant a 9wt, or if an 8wt will suffice. I already have a 2 hander for an 8/9 line, so just I'll just be building one more.

Thanks!
Troy
