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 headwaters, Someșul Cald ("Warm Someș") and Someșul Rece ("Cold Someș"), 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 Someșul Mare in Dej. Downstream from Dej, the river is called Someș.
