Today Saturday, 25th of April of 2015, the sun rose in Ketchikan at 5:16 am and sunset was at 8:13 pm. The moon set at 3:06 am at 298º northwest. Then, the moon rose at 64º northeast at 12:21 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 12:02 am and the next low tide at 12:50 pm. The first high tide was at 6:09 am and the next high tide at 7:25 pm.
The lunar phase is a First Quarter Moon. Today we had 14 hours and 57 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 12:44 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 14 hours and 45 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 41, a low value, which means that the range (difference between high tide and low tide) will be lower than on other occasions and the currents will also be small. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 39 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 39. The tide heights today are 4.9 ft, 12.8 ft, 2.0 ft and 11.8 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Ketchikan which is of 19.7 ft and a minimum height of -4.3 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Ketchikan 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 3:06 am to 4:06 am, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 7:43 am to 9:43 am, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 12:21 pm to 1:21 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise)
from 7:58 pm to 9:58 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
Tide timetable for Ketchikan. The times are generated in local time in Alaska´s Inside Passage 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 Ketchikan 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 feet 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).
