Steelhead around Windsor, Ontario

On the U.S. side the Huron (lk Erie trib.) and the Clinton (St Clair trib.) both get a few fish, but substantial pressure too. Both are around and hour drive from windsor. I don't think any of the tribs on your side get any fish to speak of.
The Thames (north of Windsor) gets a great Walleye run, if there is ice, that is an option. Also the Mitchells Bay on St Clair has fantastic perch fishing at times (ice taxis, shanties available on the Canadian side).
Most of the tribs. on the canadian side have been straightened and diverted for agriculture, coupled with a lack of deep water access near the mouths and no planting programs make Steelhead on those tribs a long shot.
I could be wrong though!

The Detroit area has very few flyshops and I know of none within the city itself. I short drive to Royal Oak would present 2 of them. One is an Orvis Company Store right on Woodward Avenue between 12 and 13 Mile Road on the east side of the road. Another is the Flymart on Main Street, also in Royal Oak. It's on Main Street, I believe just south of 12 Mile on the east side of the street. The Flymart caters more to the tyer with a pretty good selection of materials.
Certainly Cabela's is worth the drive, but hang on to your wallet. There's always something you didn't plan on buying, but it just reaches out to you on the way by...LOL
There might be some shops in the downriver area, but can't say for sure. Send Dornug an PM, he'll be able to help you out in that direction. Tell him I sent ya
BTW, a few of us are riding to Erie PA this weekend. Come join us
