I hit Saulk Rapids the other day to check out what construction is doing to the run; they're putting in a new bridge just upstream of the existing one and moving quite a bit of rock around. Right now there's actually more debris in the water than before, so maybe once the water comes up we'll have good play both above and below the bridge. We'll see what happens.
I've also been in the pool quite a bit, working on flatwater moves and teaching half a dozen or people or so to roll. Things are going well, and we should have a few new paddlers once things start to warm up.
