No fishy smell that I noticed, the latex bruised the gills slowly.

that there are at least five species of “volemus” in North America, so it’s variable…

and brown staining suggest L. volemus group.

Did the mushroom have a fishy smell? Did the latex turn brown fairly quickly? If not, it is more likely L. hygrophoroides

What makes you think it’s volemus instead of hygrophoroides?
