Try fishing your nymphs with an indicator upstream in the shoals using the high stick method. It will give your nymph a chance to get a little deeper in the fast water. Your beadhead Prince is one of the best for doing it this way. Also try a beadhead Hare's Ear. Fish all the pocket water no matter how unlikely it seems. I've caught fish in water only a little over ankle deep from among the rocks there.
A Wooly booger is good for that deeper, slower water in between, provided it's weighted to get it down under the surface.
Any time you catch a fish at Jones Bridge you've done okay considering the pounding that stretch of water takes!
