Welcome Rick. It's awesome that you're new and already catching fish on flies you've tied! They can't be all that ugly if they work.
I've never fished the Mokelumne. I looked at the regs - sounds like these fish are from a hatchery? Either way they are going to eat what they are used to. Time to have fun and get creative. Can you tie a power bait pattern?
Check out the hatchery pellet tie - you should try it.
