How versatile is an 8/9 reel?

Hi everyone. I unexpectedly won an Okuma Integrity 8/9 fly reel online and realized (oh geez) for about $10 more, I could have picked up a 5/6. I live in Oklahoma and we have a variety of species. Is the 8/9 size too large for smaller species like Crappie, Bluegill or Trout or can I use it as an all-purpose reel if I use different rods and lines?
