    I tried finding a photo of a fish fossil that looks similar and it was more of a challenge than I anticipated. But here's one that might work for you: Amphiplaga brachyptera.

    It's a rare fossil that can only be found at Fossil Lake (no, I'm not making this up). The family is Percopsidae and their appearance is similar to trout. They apparently fed on insects and small crustaceans.

    In other words, you could probably pick any type of extinct fish that suits your fancy
