Just wondering where would be the best place to wade/fish for steelhead in NorthEast Michigan? Spin or fly fishing?

Perhaps the best place is the flies only section of the Pere Marquette River between M37 downstream to Gleason's Landing.

If you fill out your profile I'll give you a couple of more places.

The Au Sable below Foote dam is wader friendly and can be productive. The smaller tribs are all wadeable, but are better discussed in a PM. As far as gear, whatever you want to fish will work. Flyfishing is much easier from a boat on the AS, but there are good spots to run from shore. You can fish anywhere with a spinning rig.
