The Bouteroue Creek is a tributary of Lake Nicabau, flowing into the unorganized territory of Lac-Ashuapmushuan, Quebec into the Regional County Municipality (RCM) of Le Domaine-du-Roy, in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean administrative region, in Quebec, in Canada.

Bouteroue Creek flows entirely in the canton of Bouteroue. Its mouth is located at 0.5 kilometres (0.31 mi) west of the Ashuapmushuan Wildlife Reserve boundary. Forestry is the main economic activity of this valley; recreational tourism activities, second.
