I think it depends on how you're trying to fish. If you're using live/dead bait on the bottom then they'll just smell it and not need to see it. If you're using a nonscented artificial they will need to see it or feel the vibrations of the lure. Remember that they can see underwater better than we can!
I've only run into "alleged" salinity problems (since I have no way to quantify the salinity of the water) during the winter months in the waccasassa. The river was super high last year so I assume it dropped the amount of salt in the water way up in the creeks. I definitely didn't find as many reds as I had in previous years, but that just could have been me. I blamed it on the salinity, but it could have been many other factors like not holding my mouth right, wrong bait, wrong company etc etc.
