Yup. Any willow will work as will birch, poplar and aspen.

Do make sure that the canal water is a clean source. There are sometimes lots of agricultural chemicals and fertilizers running through canals.
I like creeks better for willow gathering.

OH! I missed the canal part. Based on what I know about irrigation canals I would totally avoid harvesting anything within their seepage range.
