To give a good and helpful answer is quite difficult. It depends on various prerequisits:
- time scale, time range, time steps for modelling
- spatial extension of model area: large or small scale
- wich data are availble? do I can feed the choosen software with convenient data?
- or reverse: wich data need the models?

QGIS with Grass GIS is opensource software that has similar capabilities https://hub.qgis.org/wiki/17/Hydrology_and_Hydraulic_modelling
