Tide tables and solunar tables for sport fishers in Portrush. Find out the forecast for high tides and low tides before setting out to fish, and other fishing-related data such as the lunar phase, tidal coefficient, sun and moon rising and setting times, hours of maximum fish activity, weather conditions in Portrush ...
We want you to enjoy to the max a well-planned fishing expedition! Good luck!
Tides4fishing allows you to make tide predictions for Portrush years in advance. Please note that the data are approximations only valid for fishing and so IS NOT VALID FOR NAVIGATION.
Today Wednesday, 4th of March of 2015, the sun will rise in Portrush at 7:09 h and sunset will be at 18:08 h. 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 6:25 h at 286º west. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (77º) at 17:08 h.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide will be at 5:30 h and the next high tide at 17:25 h. The first low tide will be at 11:30 h and the next low tide at 22:55 h.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we will have 10 hours and 59 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:38 h and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 13 hours and 17 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 82, 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 86. The tide heights today are 1.8 m, 0.5 m, 1.7 m and 0.4 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Portrush which is of 2.4 m and a minimum height of -0.2 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Portrush 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 6:25 h to 7:25 h, 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 11:46 h to 13:46 h, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 17:08 h to 18:08 h, high activity minor period (moonrise). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 23:57 h to 1:57 h, very high activity Major period (moon up)
Tide timetable for Portrush. The times are generated in local time in Northern Ireland 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 Portrush 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).
