It's no fish tale: the fishing is excellent on the Ottawa River so far this summer.

After intense flooding on the river held up fishing activity in the spring, summer is turning into a banner season for local anglers and guides who are reeling in the big ones.

The water's still high, and that has some fish species bunching up in cooler, weedier spots in the river to eat, according to Gatineau angler Dale Kerr.
