Best lakes/reservoirs for bank fishing around San Jose?

I have the upcoming week off and plan to fish hard. I'd like to explore some of the lakes/reservoirs of the south bay since I've only been to a select few. Strictly speaking about bank/shore access, fishable terrain, parking, and other shore-fishing considerations, what are the best ones to hit?

Uvas Res in Morgan Hill. Park anywhere along the road, or park by the dam and cross it, take the path around the backside of the lake.

 

Water is pretty low everywhere. Calero could be okay, but not sure about parking on the road. Parking lot is probably $6. I'd just park there.

Heh, I ended up deciding to explore Uvas and Chesbro before I saw this. Both were fairly accessible, but Uvas definitely seemed nicer. The hike to the far side of Uvas was quite scenic.

 

Alas, as for fishing it was a skunk at both places. Only saw one bass right at the entrance to the Uvas dam and got a couple hits on a drop shot but that's about it. Lots of carp, as seems to be the case every reservoir/lake I've been to in the last month or so.

Chesbro is my nemesis. I lived two miles from it and rarely caught anything. Uvas is much nicer just to look at, and yes it has way better bass. Still tough though.

 

Went to the creek this week and caught a few. Saw some on beds. Went yesterday and saw no sign of any fish. Well I did see carp racing around, and I mean they were moving fast. Will go again this evening.
