Default Steelhead fishing questions--heading home to NYC for holidays

so i just booked my flight back home to New York City for Dec 21st - Jan 5th. so i will have some free time and would like to go fishing a day or two.
now while i grew up in NYC i left some 8 years ago for (UT,CA and now CO) and only fishing i've done there was in the summers for Pike/Bass with spinner rods.

now i would like to do some steelhead fishing, and have few questions.
1. what is the season? (year round)
2. is there any good fishing to be had at the end of December?
3. where ? this is the most important, ad i would like it to be with in few hours of NYC. or do i have to drive some 5-6 hours towards great lakes?
4. is my 8wt rod enough (single hand Sage Response) ?

thanks in advance.

I can only answer #4 and the answer is yes. Just don't get to aggressive.
