Thanks for the info guys. I’m in PA and these are stocked trout. I’ve been feeding them to my dog with no problems at all. I might start buying whole trout at the market to feed my dog occasionally because my frozen ones I caught will be all gone soon!

You might want to put it in a dehydrator, that way it isn't raw. When I work at an animal hospital in San Diego, we had dogs come in that very sick from eating trout that was raw and they almost died. Be very careful with it.

Salmonella is present in nearly all fish in the PNW, but it gets spread around by seagulls who've eaten the fish too, so it can and does occur outside the PNW. Just not frequently.
Salmon poisoning is caused when dog consumes raw salmon (or related species) that contains flukes ( Nanophyetus salmincola) that carry bacteria ( Neorickettsia helminthoeca).

The OP is in Pennsylvania where salmon poisoning is not an issue.

Ive fed my dogs fresh caught trout, but I boiled the filets to make a sort of soupy fish stew to pour over their kibble. There was definitely plenty of meaty bits as well. They love it.

Also I’m in the western Carolinas.
