We get these questions often. What fish are biting in Crystal River FL? What fish live in Crystal River? Are there bull sharks in Crystal River Florida? Crystal River is home to a variety of fish species, including redfish, snook, tarpon, trout, and sheepshead. In the summer months, anglers can also find cobia and kingfish in the area. As for bull sharks, while they have been spotted in the area, they are not typically found in the freshwater portions of Crystal River. Instead, they tend to stay in the brackish waters closer to the Gulf of Mexico. Overall, Crystal River offers excellent fishing opportunities for anglers of all levels and is a great destination for those looking to target a variety of fish species.
