The Someșul Mic River (Little Someș, Hungarian: Kis-Szamos) is a river in north-western Romania (Cluj County). It is formed at the confluence of two rivers, Someșul Cald and Someșul Rece, that come from the Apuseni Mountains. From the confluence, in Gilău, the Someșul Mic flows east and north through Cluj-Napoca, Apahida and Gherla, until it meets the Someşul Mare river in Dej. Downstream from Dej, the river is called Someș.
