La Maine is a river (different from Le Maine (province)), a tributary of the Loire, 12 km (7 mi.) long, in the Maine-et-Loire département in France.

It is formed by the confluence of the Mayenne and Sarthe rivers north of Angers. It flows through this city and joins the Loire south-west of Angers.
