When u move your camera to a different position you have to push the button that is circled on the attached image. Then the camera will see those new coordinates.

Highly recommended are these beginner tutorials...
I watched them and so I got a much better understanding of all these basics.

This is my first idea just out of the blue:

Under Render Tab look for something called like this: Atmo/Cloud visible.
This is in TG4 but guessing TG2 should have something similar like this.

When u add a lake then it will show up at coordinates 0.1.0. with a radius of 100000. This is very big but if u moved your camera out of this radius then u will not see it. Handling is to crank up the radius. If you still not seeing the water then raise the level of the water.

try right clicking anywhere on the shore area of the proposed lake and select the altitude option, see pic. My cursor is right under the dialogue box.

The water level in your file is up in the sky. Put 250m for water level and it will show up and play from there.
