I have a notification from Google that says 'Downloading'. When I try to find what specifically is showing it, it says Data Download Notification Channel. I'd prefer to just figure out why it's there and be able to fix the issue, and not just hide the notifications from that one specific thing. Anyone hav any ideas how?

I know this doesn't give you what you want, but I would just chalk it up to a one-off quirk. I would expect rebooting would likely get rid of it, and hopefully, it wouldn't return, at least not regularly.
Rebooting does temporarily get rid of it but it comes back pretty soon after reboot. So I don't think it's a one off unfortunately.

Edit: my mobile data signal just went to like one bar and the notification went away. When I drove into a better signal area it came back.

I've had this numerous times. Go into Apps and force stop the Google app. It makes it go away permanently. Or at least until next time it happens.
