Salmon & steelhead rods

What would you say is the "minimum" fly rod line weight for salmon & steelies?
The largest fly rod I own is an Orvis Spring Creek WF5F, 9'3".
I have caught 36" northern pike with it and landed them with no trouble.
I am going to the Grand river in Ohio this fall, but I will be tempting marital fate if I buy "another" fly rod.
But, a man's got to do, what a man's got to do.
