The Sandusky Bay Bridge Access (North) is a state-operated public fishing site approximately 4.2 miles west of the Dempsey Fishing Access in Danbury Township.
The nearly one-mile long access extends south into Sandusky Bay and was once the northern approach to the old Sandusky Bay Bridge. In 1965, the majority of the bridge’s traffic was rerouted to the new four-lane Thomas A. Edison Memorial Bridge (OH-2 and OH-269). The old two-lane bridge, which connected to Bay View in Erie County, was removed in 1985. The southern causeway approach in Erie County is also a popular fishing location.
A handicapped-accessible fishing deck was added in 2013.
From Lake Erie Public Access Guide
Today, on some maps the state fishing access is marked as State Fishing Access and Yetter Road. The fishing access is just east of OH-269 and south off of East Bayshore Road in Danbury Township.
About Sandusky Bay
Sandusky Bay is one of the principal bodies of water in northern Ohio. It is situated in between Erie, Ottawa, and Sandusky counties and part of Lake Erie. It was identified as Lac (Lake) Sandouské on a 1718 map by Guillaume Delisle. It has also been referred to as Lake Junandat, Lake Otsandoske, Lake Sandusky, Sandoski Bay, Sandusky Bay, and Sandusky Lake. According to Francis Leroy Landacre, it is a “shallow, almost land-locked harbor averaging about twelve feet in depth, some fourteen or fifteen miles in length, with a width of something like two miles.” It contains numerous marshes and serves as an entry point for several streams. Sandusky Bay runs from Muddy Creek Bay to Cedar Point, which separates Sandusky Bay from Lake Erie. The Sandusky River drains into the bay at its westernmost point.
The Thomas A. Edison Memorial Bridge carries OH-2 and OH-269 across Sandusky Bay at its Eastern end. This is the only direct highway link between Ottawa and Erie Counties. Sandusky Bay can be viewed from Marblehead Lighthouse at Marblehead Lighthouse State Park. The Sandusky Bay Water Trail was dedicated on June 2, 2007, to provide recreational opportunities along Sandusky Bay. The water of Sandusky Bay is shallow and rarely clear.
