The solunar fishing calendar in Sagres 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 3:48 h to 5:48 h, average activity Major period (moon down)
from 9:54 h to 10:54 h, low activity minor period (moonrise)
from 16:22 h to 18:22 h, average activity Major period (moon up). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 22:51 h to 23:51 h, low activity minor period (moonset)
