The Ishëm River is a river in western Albania. It forms part of a watercourse (Tiranë-Gjole-Ishëm) that measures 79 km, but only the lower third of the watercourse is known as the Ishëm. The Ishëm proper is formed at the confluence of the rivers Gjole and Zezë, a few km northwest of Fushë-Krujë. It flows into the Adriatic Sea near the town Ishëm.
