We want you to enjoy to the max a well-planned fishing expedition! Good luck!
Today Tuesday, 30th of June of 2015, the sun will rise in Kitimat at 5:07 am and sunset will be at 10:10 pm. Today we begin the day with the moon already visible in the sky, so first we will see the moonset, which will take place at 4:21 am at 238º southwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the southeast (123º) at 8:36 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 12:10 am and the next high tide will be at 1:15 pm. The first low tide will be at 7:05 am and the next low tide at 6:50 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we will have 17 hours and 3 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 1:39 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 7 hours and 45 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 81, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 84 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 88. The tide heights today are 5.3 m, 0.8 m, 4.6 m and 2.0 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Kitimat which is of 6.5 m and a minimum height of -0.1 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Kitimat tells us that today is a good day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 4:21 am to 5:21 am, high activity minor period (moonset). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 12:28 pm to 2:28 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 8:36 pm to 9:36 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise)
Tide timetable for Kitimat. The times are generated in local time in British Columbia 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 Kitimat 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).
