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…

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?
