On 29 February a Japanese convoy was attacked in the area assigned to Trout, and one ship was sunk, and another severely damaged. Trout was never heard from again, and may have been sunk by one of the convoy's escorts. Chief Motor Machinist's Mate Smith was listed as Missing in Action and later declared dead 14 April 1946.
