great lakes steelhead

Hey all,
I'm a Missourian and looking for the closest place to fish for steelhead. I figure Wisconsin steelhead would be the closest place. Anyway, could someone possibly fill me in with some info about streams, time of year to fish, how to get there... Would also like to know about salmon as well in those streams.

Anything called a river that flows into Lake Michigan will have steelies from late Oct thru May. Most fish in Spring but often high water.

Between Wi and MI I prefer Michigan for steelies. Do a google search for Steelhead fishing in Michigan. Also try the Steelhead Site "Michigan Reports." Water conditions and weather will play a huge role in your success. Have a game plan and be prepared to drive from one river to the next depending on conditions.

I miss the old Herter's
