Get a Stream Machine. That's what most people use for boats and stuff. But if you want even more power, buy a water gun and modify it so that the intake tube goes down into the lake instead of the reservoir.

If you use an intake tube, you better have a purifier (spelling, sorry). Especially if you're using anything CPS or rubber tubing.

Yeah, you'll want an intake screen. I'd also advise not filling a valuable, no-longer-made blaster with river water.

If you really need some extra waterpower (but don't want to use compressors, etc.) it may be possible to improvise a turret sort of gun. There are one or two improvised foot pumps to pump water which draw the water into an air pressure or CPH chamber and the turret can be fired in any way you need it to.

Making regular pumps is already difficult enough though, so I don't know how likely it is to be able to have a foot pump work on water.

The easiest water gun to do by far is to remove the reservoir of a good water blaster and have a tube hooked up to it instead. It may be tricky to get a non-permanent seal though, and as mentioned above you'll need screens to keep out foreign material.

It should be borne in mind that if you don't mind risking damage, a blaster can be filled very quickly by simply dunking it in the river.

Go here for a river cannon, this guy used a 6.5 hp pump to get amazing results.
