Rivière Ferrée flows south from Anticosti Island for 26 kilometers, draining a watershed of some 150 square kilometers. It is the island's least-frequented salmon river.
A river of contrasts, its upstream section is characterized by an astonishingly rugged relief, while towards the mouth it flows through calm waters. This flat terrain is ideal for observing the sea ducks and geese that frequent the island's coastline.
The Rivière Ferrée has 20 salmon pools along its entire course, of which only 3 are accessible to anglers, located on the territory of outfitter Safari Anticosti, which holds exclusive fishing rights over 14 kilometers of the river. As it is located close to the Chaloupe River, the outfitter uses the Ferrée as a secondary river when the maximum number of anglers is reached on the Chaloupe. Fishing quotas on the Ferrée are also lower than on the other rivers managed by Safari Anticosti.
