In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 5:00 h and the next high tide will be at 17:15 h. The first low tide will be at 11:25 h and the next low tide at 23:50 h.
The lunar phase is a Waning Crescent. Today we have 10 hours and 20 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 13:01 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 6 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 79, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 83 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 86. The tide heights today are 5.1 m, 0.4 m, 5.2 m and 0.1 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Bideford which is of 6.2 m and a minimum height of -0.8 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Bideford 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 5:05 h to 6:05 h, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 11:08 h to 13:08 h, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 17:11 h to 18:11 h, high activity minor period (moonset). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 23:40 h to 1:40 h, very high activity Major period (moon down)
Tide timetable for Bideford. The times are generated in local time in England 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 Bideford 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).
