Smoked Trout: How long does it keep?

My friend Dot's son just smoked a bunch of fresh trout today on his home-made smoker. Now, she has a lot of very delicious smoked trout for a party. The worry: how long can she keep it in the refrigerator before turning it in to pate to serve at said party?

It depends on whether the fish was hot- or cold-smoked. If hot-smoked (more likely with a homemade smoker), two or three days, the same as ordinary cooked fish. If cold-smoked, a couple months.
