Oops, I have to take that back. "Forellenschuss" was my guess. I thought
I'd excluded the "-schluss with an appropriate Google search, but
apparently I mistyped the search terms.

There are about 241 Google hits for "Forellenschluss" and 280 for the
spelling with eszet. For "Forellenschuss", the numbers are 99 and 108.

The "-schluss" version doesn't make much sense to me in German.
