"Two Fish" for one makes a water bottle cage that velcros onto a bike frame. I don't particularly like them because when the bottle is full they tend to slide around the tube.

There are a variety of water bottle mounts that bolt to the back of your saddle. Triathletes use them because they are more aero than conventional frame bottle mounts. If you are already using that area for an under the saddle bag, they won't work.

Minoura makes a nifty little bracket that holds a water bottle cage in front of the handlebar. It might not work, however, if you have a front loading stem.

Can you say camelback? I think that's a good answer if you are concerned about carrying enough water on your bike. Keeps the water cool longer too.
