Oztrains is the winner!!!. Doesn't need to be all mud, grass or manicured ballast will work real good also.

I applied some wash and paint  on the bottom of the stream , to give  some depth  ( light paint at the edge and darker at the center  )

Now, the fun part: modelling water  ( a small   and calm stream  in that case ) .
Modelling the stream bed : 2 layers of foamcore  and some drywall  spackling compound
Painting  the stream bed : Light grey at the edges and darker in the center to simulate depth , with some mottled   brown .
Add some  material: branches, sand ,rocks, old tires   ;) etc,
Build a dam  to contain the "water" .As can be seen on the picture I used some piece of styrene sheet hold in place by some blue painter tape. The dam must be 100% waterproof  so I sealed it using clear caulking. The caulking is easily removed  after the pouring medium is dry.
Pour the "water"  I use the Liquitex pouring medium, it is very  stable , stays clear
Pour several layers  ( if required  )  of 1/8 " thick maximum
Here is a  picture of the various tests:
