About Sandbar Causeway
The Sandbar Causeway area provides a mix of shallow and mid-depth fishing opportunities around the Route 2 bridge.

This is a unique area because it serves as a natural migration corridor for fish moving between the Inland Sea of Lake Champlain and Malletts Bay. The small channel connecting the two areas of the lake is also a natural feeding location for fish, making it one of the top shoreline fishing locations in the greater Burlington area.

Take Interstate 89 north to Route 2, exit 17, Milton and Lake Champlain Islands. Bear right off the exit and head west on Route 2 approximately 6.5 miles. Travel along the causeway until you see a parking area on your left. Park there and then walk west until you reach the Route 2 bridge.
From Sandbar Causeway webpage

The parking area on the causeway is in Chittenden County. The Chittenden-Grand Isle county line is at the Route 2 bridge in the middle of the causeway.
