Building a large dam that wouldn’t break in a flood is a daunting task. Pulling water from up steam in a pipe might be a more feasable method. In any case I wouldn’t be to serious until I measured the vertical head.
A ram pump is fairly easy to build and can be used to lift water. A large pump can move a lot of water continuously.
