Since the fish are taking live worms you might also tie up some San Juan Worm patterns, they are just chennile and a hook.

An easier tie then some of the more complicated crawfish patterns, try tying up a few wooly buggers in crawfish colors and throwing those to the fish, this has worked for me in the past.

Well I have been hiting the Mokelumne River river pretty hard here the past week. and I found a nice little spot where the fish feed consistently off the top water I hooked a few on some caddis but they really like the Griffith’s Gnat. I've hooked a few but I seem to have a problem with netting the fish i get them all the way to me and they slip off just as I try to net them but it works for me quick and easy release. some pics my GF took yesterday.

Have you tried nymphing under an indicator? if you have enough splitshot (depending on the current) to get your fly deep into that hole where the fish lie and present a nice drag free drift you should hook up. A san juan worm as a trailer or even a crawfish pattern would work nicely.

I love this shot - It looks like you are in the midst of a mayfly monsoon and she captured your line at a great moment!

I'd love to cast a few over there some time.

Hey Nick yes they are both from the mokelumne, I've been having luck with a griffiths gnat. My buddy said he hooked into about a 24" out there the otherday with a diving caddis but it broke his line. I hit it this morning and nothing was even surfacing in my normal spot. I did manage to hook one on a pheasant tail nymph it was a jumper and after the 3rd jump it got off.
