A "short term" license (1 day) includes all species.

Around here (Detroit) you are quite limited for trout or steelhead. When are you coming this way? If the waters receede, the Huron in Flat Rock and the Clinton in Shelby Twp can produce steel. We're expecting a decent return do to increased stocking a few years back
I know where they live, I know what they eat. Now it's time to fool them with thread, feathers and roadkill.

Not much in that area for sure. You would be better off hitting the Grand in Ontario for steel head towards the mouth or for big Browns by Elora and Fergus.

Gotta agree with Wildcat

By May all of the trout/steelhead fishing is over, with the exception of Paint Creek in Rochester. It's stocked yearly with (some) hold-overs from the previous year.

Give me a shout prior to your arrival.
