I run diawa 47hlc with 20# big game mono on 7’ Okuma trolling rods for stripers in my neck of the woods is the sufficient enough for salmon and browns or do I need to go bigger with my line. Not to worried about the rods also have two older 47h no lc with 25# mono that will be set up with down riggers rods

20 is fine until the sea fleas show up in July.  When the do throw 150 feet of 30 big game to prevent buildup.

Or run Bloodrun 30 lb Sea Flee mono The 47H holds about 275 yds or so of it.and leader down with 20 lb fluoro for kings and 12 for browns. In rthe old days I only used straight 12 lb Big Game for both before fleas.

I run 15lb test on my BT set-ups that have taken many kings. For Salmon I run 20lb test when running spoons, and 25lb test when pulling paddles/meat/flies. I'm gonna say your set-ups will work just fine!

FWIW, before the fleas showed up, all we ever ran on our rigger rods was 12 lb Trilene XT and landed many high 20's and 30 kings back in the 90's when fish that size were fairly common.
