My First Land Locked Salmon?

Caught this guy at Seneca Lake today (finger lakes of NY). I was just messing around off a dock with a bunch of fish under it and this one grabbed my jig. So I'm wondering if this is my first LLS?

I honestly have a hard time differenting them from brown trout, especially when they are smaller. Something about the tail is supposed to be different I think.

The eye is too far forward for a landlock,tail is to square and the telltale red spots therefore I believe it is a Brown Trout.

I looked at a 100 pics this morning and eye head are the only things i could say didn't look quite right. Hatchery fish have been known to be mutants though from time to time so i didn't comment. I assume they hatchery fish at least.

Yea looks like just a regular old stocked brown. Damn. I know the finger lakes have LLS so I was hopeful.
