We want you to enjoy to the max a well-planned fishing expedition! Good luck!
Today Friday, 28th of August of 2015, the sun will rise in Philadelphia at 6:25 am and sunset will be at 7:38 pm. The moon set at 4:57 am at 253º southwest. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the southeast (104º) at 6:50 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first high tide was at 12:35 am and the next high tide will be at 1:06 pm. The first low tide will be at 7:41 am and the next low tide at 7:51 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we will have 13 hours and 13 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 1:02 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 10 hours and 7 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 99. With such a hight coefficient we will have big tides and the currents will also be very evident. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 104 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 108. The tide heights today are 7.5 ft, 0.3 ft, 6.6 ft and 0.3 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 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 4:57 am to 5:57 am, high activity minor period (moonset)
from 11:53 am to 1:53 pm, very high activity Major period (moon down)
from 6:50 pm to 7:50 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise). This period also coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
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).
