Where's going to be good to paddle this weekend?

Rain came and went this week, looks like most levels have dropped, where's going to be still good for a grade 3 or 4 paddle this weekend? Northern England or North Wales areas. I think treweryn is not releasing.

Re: Thinking of a New Boat

I used to paddle the new Zen Large and it was a great boat for getting down the river safely. Nice recently upgraded to the Zet Toro and man what a boat. The Zen was great but the Toro is faster, spins easier and has excellent primary stability.
