Saltwater/freshwater boundary Crystal River

Anybody know where the magical dotted line is between freshwater and saltwater in the Crystal River area? Or better yet: a website that will give maps for the same around the state? Working in the CR area and wondering where my saltwater license is valid and where I'd need a freshwater one. Thanks!

    It doesn't work like that. Since the rivers in the area run from fresh to salt, you may fish any place you want. But if you hold a saltwater licenses you may only keep saltwater fish. If you hold a freshwater licenses you may only keep freshwater fish.
    It will be a sad day when the last little mom and pop marina is gone to developers and only the rich will be able to enjoy the waters of Florida.

    As long as you are in the river, i.e. you can't start in the river with a FW license and go into the Gulf.

    Gotcha, thanks for the replies! I'm used to a bit farther south, and down here they pick a spot and say upriver is fresh and downriver is salt. Good to know, thanks again!
