We want you to enjoy to the max a well-planned fishing expedition! Good luck!
Today Sunday, 1st of February of 2015, the sun rose in Sitka at 7:58 am and sunset will be at 4:32 pm. The moon set at 7:20 am at 303º northwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the northeast (58º) at 3:51 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 4:59 am and the next low tide will be at 5:45 pm. The only high tide of the day was at 10:56 am.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we have 8 hours and 34 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 12:15 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 15 hours and 29 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 72, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 75 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 78. The tide heights today are 3.9 ft, 10.5 ft and -0.3 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 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 7:20 am to 8:20 am, average activity minor period (moonset). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 11:35 am to 1:35 pm, high activity Major period (moon down)
from 3:51 pm to 4:51 pm, average activity minor period (moonrise). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 11:52 pm to 1:52 am, high activity Major period (moon up)
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).
