Yes, the marine water stays on the bottom and can go upstream quite a ways. I
have caught salt water fish and freshwater fish in the same place with the
salt water fish being deep and the freshwater fish shallow. In some places
like the amazon you can collect freshwater well out to sea because the
freshwater floats on top of the salt water.
