I don't believe so. The old canal routing joined with the new routing just north of the Delta Lake State Park. The thing I'm looking at in the lake is north of that.
I just realized that I may have confused you with this, hojack. When I said "The thing I'm looking at in the lake" I meant between F and G. The old canal route is H-I. The new canal route joined the old at J where the old was still above water. Switch to Mapnik (in the top right) and you'll see what I mean.
The F-G thing is below the level of the lake. It could be the result of some dredging to create a channel there. I think it's more likely that, given that it's on the route of the OC&R given in their map, it is
the OC&R, running down in a cut. Given that it's going through a high area like A-B, F-G probably would have needed a cut, too.
