There are hundreds of rivers, and streams that flow into the great lakes that have runs of steelhead, and the best steelhead rivers are the rivers that have the biggest runs of steelhead and have enough access that anglers can actually fish for them.

Some anglers will prefer to fish big rivers where the fish fight harder and have lots of room to run, while others prefer smaller rivers and creeks that concentrate the fish which can make catching them easier.
