May be time for a week or two of less gorging...if you goal is more lean mass gain. You may like 2 weeks of more eating, 2 weeks less (still trying to maitain lean mass of course...with more protein/fat, less carbs but also less calories.)

You could go the old way of bulking up a ton and then trying to diet it off later....but I never liked that personally, and there is always some muscle loss on the diet back down. Lot easier to try and control the BF while you are lower than try and get there much later.

Try to keep you BF% low, do the 2week bulk up, 2 week maintenance cycle...and use that to evaluate and tweak. You should be able to find a solid program that eventually leads to mostly lean that is all it is, just finding the right balance and program of loading.
