The ford is only the highway across the river. That's mapped correctly
as a way with a ford=yes tag:
I'd delete your area & the ford=yes node. I'd also add a weir tag to the
downstream side to indicate the sudden drop in water level.

To your natural=water I'd add the complimentary tag water=river to make
it easier for data consumers to find just rivers.
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:water gives a variety of options.
