Question regarding riverbanks & where they should be marked, thanks?

Was doing some HOT mapping a little while back in Nepal & the area I was
working on was surrounding a river - sorry, I can't remember the exact

The imagery I was working of had apparently been taken during the dry
season as the actual river channel with water in it was ~30 - 50 m's wide.
But the wet season river (or possibly flood?) channel was very obviously
~500 - 700 m's wide.

What should we be marking as the "riverbank" - where the water is visible
"now", or the defined limits of where it spreads out to in the wet season?
