The tidal coefficient today is 70, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 65 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 61. The tide heights today are 6.6 ft, 0.7 ft and 6.6 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Philadelphia which is of 7.9 ft and a minimum height of -1.0 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Philadelphia tells us that today is a bad day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is low, however, this is just a chance so we encourage you to take your rod and try it during solunar periods. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
Tide timetable for Philadelphia. The times are generated in local time in Pennsylvania 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 Philadelphia 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).
