Recommendations near Carmel/Big Sur

I'm in Santa Cruz (about an hour from Carmel), and I think your best bet for a river is the Salinas River, although I don't know what's in there for fish. Alot of guys do surf casting for rockfish etc. If you wanted to give striped bass a shot you could try the San Luis Reservoir. Do you have a float tube, or are you casting from shore? Either way, good luck.
