Today Monday, 24th of November of 2014, the sun will rise in Kitimat at 8:21 am and sunset will be at 4:23 pm. The moon will rise in the southeast (123º) at 10:15 am and will set in the southwest (238º) at 6:55 pm.

The lunar phase is a Waxing Crescent. Today we will have 8 hours and 2 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:22 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 8 hours and 40 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 90. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 88 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 85. The tide heights today are 5.3 m, 2.0 m, 5.9 m and 0.5 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 an excellent day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is very high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 2:05 am to 4:05 am, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 10:15 am to 11:15 am, very high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 2:35 pm to 4:35 pm, very high activity Major period (moon up). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 6:55 pm to 7:55 pm, very high activity minor period (moonset)
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).
