Big dog lunging [excited not aggressive]

Hi,

I have a 3.5 yo female Newfie mix.
She is a sweet dog.
But when we walk on leash, she always lunges to greet other dogs on leash.
Not aggressively, she's just excited to meet them.
But it's frustrating and difficult to manage her.
And some dogs (and owners) don't like to be lunged at - well-intentioned or not
I use a choke collar and I have tried various techniques.
But she's just not responding.
I live on a canal with a walk path on each side of the water so it's quite busy.
I could try to avoid other dogs, but I'd rather not.

Any suggestions?
