Today Wednesday, 26th of November of 2014, the sun rose in Portland at 6:05 am and sunset was at 8:36 pm. The moon rose in the southeast (112º) at 9:32 am and will set in the southwest (250º) at 11:52 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 3:30 am and the next high tide at 2:00 pm. The first low tide was at 10:25 am and the next low tide at 8:25 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Crescent. Today we had 14 hours and 31 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 1:21 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 14 hours and 20 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 76, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 71 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 69. The tide heights today are 1.1 m, 0.5 m, 0.6 m and 0.1 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Portland which is of 1.2 m and a minimum height of 0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Portland tells us that today is a bad day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is low, however, this is just a chance so we encourage you to take your rod and try it during solunar periods. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 4:17 am to 6:17 am, average activity Major period (moon down). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 9:32 am to 10:32 am, low activity minor period (moonrise)
from 4:42 pm to 6:42 pm, average activity Major period (moon up)
from 11:52 pm to 12:52 am, low activity minor period (moonset)
Tide timetable for Portland. The times are generated in local time in Victoria and the daylight saving time change is calculated automatically, so you don't need to add or subtract anything. You will also have the lunar phase, sunrise and sunset times, the tidal coefficient and the average fish activity forecast for each day according to the solunar tables:
[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Portland are tide forecasts only valid as references for sport fishing. They shouldn't be used as a guide for navigation. The heights are expressed in meters referenced to Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).
MLLW is the average of the lower low water height of each tidal day observed over the official time segment over which tide observations are taken and reduced to obtain mean value (Tidal Datum Epoch).
