The mission of the Everett Salmon and Steelhead Youth Organization (ESSYO) to furnish a quality outdoor experience to the youth of the community. The ESSYO recognizes that young people and their families must be encouraged to engage in outdoor activities. Through education we predict young people will develop an ongoing interest and continue to expand upon their experiences. In addition, ESSYO attempts to enhance fishing opportunities by operating a working salmon hatchery and a net pen project to increase the number of available fish in the system.
We furnish this opportunity without regard to sex, race, national origin or physical or mental disability and encourage all youth to participate.
