This will be very simple for a lot of you! But I been getting mixed answers about his catch. Is this a chinook salmon or brown spotted trout? Caught in Angus, Ontario, Canada. (Hwy 90 Bridge)

I appreciate the help!

Judging from the curved caudal (tail) fin, which is more square in brown trout, this appears to be a chinook salmon. The mouth also appears to be black whereas in brown trout the mouth is white.
