nice, what did you do to get the lake ? separate plane ?

 

No, just made a really wide river. Takes a bit of playing with to get it right, but doable.

One other note:
The height of the node near the dam should be such that it determines the lowest level of the lake above the dam.  The node at the far end away from the dam should be just a bit higher.  This may require playing with the height of the terrain below each of the nodes (Turning on "Auto- Update On Terrain Change" can help during that process).

Ah i wondered if you just did a superwide river 😄 Really need those splines to have arbitrary width per node (but I havent played with the beta splines enough to know if we can do that yet)

You should have seen some of my early day testing. 
I made really really large rivers and got yelled at all the time they were not rivers by the time I was done with them hehe.
