All the ones in the Fernie/Cranbrook area are going to be your best bet.

I am in Lethbridge also and plan on hitting a few of them up with my single man pontoon in the middle of June when I head out that way for a week.

30lb test, stout heavy action flippin rod, imitation snag proof frog, cast into the lillys, largemouth attacks, set hook like Roland Martin, reel as fast as you can with your low profile 40:1 baitcasting reel, do not net this fish, just grab your heavy action rod half way up and fling it in the 70k ranger bass boat, now lip the bass and remove hook, smile for a quick pic, throw, dont set the fish back in the water......... all this happened in 6.4 seconds! Bass fishing.

Where did you find a 40:1 baitcaster best I could find was a 32:1 and it will only handle 200 lb test
