The “Portage River” has its source in an agricultural area of the municipality of Saint-Valère, south of the Defoy hamlet (of Daveluyville), on the east side of route 261 and north of the Bulstrode River.

From its source, the Portage River flows over 12.5 kilometres (7.8 mi), especially in agricultural (or forest, in places) territory according to the following segments:

  • 1.4 kilometres (0.87 mi) north into Saint-Valère;
  • 3.6 kilometres (2.2 mi) north through Daveluyville, passing west of the Defoy hamlet, to highway 20;
  • 7.5 kilometres (4.7 mi) north to its mouth.[1]

The Portage River flows onto the south shore of the Bécancour River, just downstream from Portage Island and downstream from the village of Daveluyville.

The toponym “rivière du Portage” was made official on December 5, 1968 at Commission de toponymie du Québec.[2]
