Freezing Water

Hey I'm going on a easy class II-III trip this weekend. I've never paddled this early in the season before and I was told that the water temp is like 35 degrees air temp around 50.

I've got a bomber gear drytop I just bought along with a farmer john, splash pants and one of those under armor "wicking" shirts. Can anyone who paddles freezing cold water give me some tips? Is this enough?

Pogies, scull cap, fleece top, would be suggested if you want to stay warm, and stay upright!
