We want you to enjoy to the max a well-planned fishing expedition! Good luck!
Today Wednesday, 27th of May of 2015, the sun will rise in Valdez at 4:29 am and sunset will be at 10:56 pm. Today we begin the day with the moon already visible in the sky, so first we will see the moonset, which will take place at 4:11 am at 272º west. Eventually, the moon will rise again in the east (92º) at 4:35 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 3:39 am and the next low tide will be at 3:28 pm. The first high tide will be at 9:37 am and the next high tide at 10:12 pm.
The lunar phase is a Waxing Gibbous. Today we will have 18 hours and 27 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 1:43 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 36 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 47, a low value, which means that the range (difference between high tide and low tide) will be lower than on other occasions and the currents will also be small. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 50 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 54. The tide heights today are 3.6 ft, 8.2 ft, 3.0 ft and 10.2 ft. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Valdez which is of 15.4 ft and a minimum height of -3.9 ft.
The solunar fishing calendar in Valdez 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:
| from 4:11 am to 5:11 am, low activity minor period (moonset). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 10:23 am to 12:23 pm, average activity Major period (moon down)
from 4:35 pm to 5:35 pm, low activity minor period (moonrise)
from 10:30 pm to 12:30 am, average activity Major period (moon up)
Tide timetable for Valdez. The times are generated in local time in Southcentral Alaska 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 Valdez 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).
