The Maly Irgiz (Russian: Малый Ирги́з, literally Little Irgiz) is a river in Saratov Oblast, Russia, the left tributary of the Volga. It is 235 kilometres (146 mi) long, with a drainage basin of 3,900 square kilometres (1,500 sq mi). The river is fed by snow. Above Seleznikha Maly Irgiz dries up systematically (up to 305 days per year without drainage). Between November and April the Maly Irgiz is frozen.
