LEHI — Bass Pro Shops and Cabela's are celebrating the return of fishing season and inviting customers to trade in used gear to be donated to local charities during its 2019 Spring Fishing Classic Feb. 15 through March 3.

Customers who donate used rods and reels (in working order) at either the Lehi or Farmington locations can receive trade-in savings of up to $200 on a new rod and reel. The used fishing equipment will be donated to local youth-focused nonprofit organizations.
