The Damnée River (in French: rivière Damnée) flows entirely in the municipality of Saint-Damase-de-L'Islet, in the L'Islet Regional County Municipality, in the administrative region of Chaudière-Appalaches, in the province of Quebec, in Canada.
The Damnée river takes its source from streams descending the eastern slope of Mont Fournier which is located in the municipality of Saint-Damase-de-L'Islet, very close to the limit of the municipality of Saint-Aubert, in the heart of Notre Dame Mountains.
