What is the best tides4fishing?

by California Outdoor Pro on May 01, 2021

There are different types of tides.

Types of tides: diurnal, semidiurnal, and mixed. Figure from NOAA Co-OPS Education. The tidal type only refers to the pattern of high and low tides each day, not to the height of the water or tidal range (change in water height between high and low tide).

What tide is best for fishing?

rising tide

An incoming tide, or rising tide, is considered one of the best fishing tide times. Water that enters an estuary area from the ocean can have a lower temperature, contain more oxygen, and have better clarity than the water that exists in the estuary during low tide or slack water periods.

Which Tide type brings the highest tide of a month?

spring tides

So spring tides bring the most extreme high and low tides every month, and they always happen – every month – around full and new moon

Is it good to fish at low tide?

Conversely, depressions in the bottom or a channel that remains deeper than the surrounding waters can have excellent fishing during a low tide. As a general rule of thumb, a changing tide and moving currents are best while static or “dead” tides with little moving water are commonly slow fishing times.

Is high tide or low tide best for fishing?

It's best to fish moving tides. You don't want to fish when the tide is at its highest or lowest – but when it's between these stages. Incoming tides are great for fishing. When the water level is rising, and water is coming in from the ocean, fish “ride” this current into shallower areas in search of food.
