We want you to enjoy to the max a well-planned fishing expedition! Good luck!
Today Wednesday, 30th of July of 2014, the sun rose in Sitka at 4:58 am and sunset will be at 9:17 pm. The moon will rise in the east (87º) at 10:31 am and will set in the west (270º) at 11:03 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 3:08 am and the next high tide will be at 3:57 pm. The first low tide will be at 9:33 am and the next low tide at 9:53 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Crescent. Today we have 16 hours and 19 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 1:08 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 32 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 75, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 72 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 70. The tide heights today are 9.2 ft, -0.3 ft, 8.9 ft and 2.0 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Sitka which is of 12.8 ft and a minimum height of -3.3 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Sitka tells us that today is an average day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is average. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 4:38 am to 6:38 am, high activity Major period (moon down). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 10:31 am to 11:31 am, average activity minor period (moonrise)
from 4:47 pm to 6:47 pm, high activity Major period (moon up)
from 11:03 pm to 12:03 am, average activity minor period (moonset)
Tide timetable for Sitka. 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 Sitka 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).
