Steve Raymond devoted an entire chapter of his book "The Estuary Flyfisher" to a study he conducted over a number of years to the relationship between tides and Cutthroat Trout. Although different areas may experience variation to his findings, its been my experience for the areas I fish that his observations are pretty accurate. For me, the best time seems to be (1) the middle 2 hours of an incoming tide when (2) those middle 2 hours are just after daylight and (3) there is a great varience between the height of the low and high tides (meaning a minus low tide and a high high tide.) Again, your mileage may vary depending on the inlet/estuary and its unique variables.
