Today Thursday, 26th of November of 2015, the sun rose in Sitka at 8:07 am and sunset was at 3:31 pm. The moon set at 9:32 am at 304º northwest. Then, the moon rose at 55º northeast at 5:55 pm.

The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we had 7 hours and 24 minutes of sun. The solar transit was at 11:49 am and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 15 hours and 37 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 101. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 98 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 94. The tide heights today are 10.2 ft, 2.3 ft, 12.5 ft and -2.3 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 excellent day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is very high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 1:20 am to 3:20 am, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 9:32 am to 10:32 am, very high activity minor period (moonset)
from 1:43 pm to 3:43 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 5:55 pm to 6:55 pm, very high activity minor period (moonrise)
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).
