How do I mix noodles into a stir-fry?

Whenever I stir-fry with noodles, I end up with a lump of noodles surrounded by the other ingredients, instead of a well-mixed stir-fry. Help!

I figure there must be a technique or prep step that I am missing.
This happens with egg noodles, rice noodles, thin noodles or broad noodles. I have tried using a cast iron wok and a deep Circulon saute pan.
I have tried rinsing the noodles right before mixing them in to break up the starch bonds, and I have also tried adding small amounts of noodles, mixing, and then adding more. Doesn't seem to matter, I get a lump of saucy noodles with other stuff on the side.
What am I missing?
