Dear Brian:

I am wondering if Fish and American crows roost together.

Yes, they do. Winter roosts not far from the shore in CT, especially west of the CT River, are nearly always mixed. There have been big roosts at the West Haven Dump, a small roost near the Krispy Kreme Doughnuts in Milford, a roost at the intersection of Rts 34 and 121 around the Orange-Derby line. All have mixed American and Fish Crows. Some you can pick out visually, but others "intermediate" you have to pick them out by voice.
