Dustin, check the torque converter on the engine side. See if there is a drain plug on it. If so, make sure it's not the culprit for this leak. If the plug is cross-threaded or not properly tightened, it can leak.
You guys are both right, pulling the trans is a pain. But, if the plug isn't the issue, try having the front pump and the converter magnafluxed to check for small cracks. I'm doubtful, since you say the leak is pretty significant now.
Get yourself a face shield. Pull the inspection plate, and using a good light source, check to see if you can locate the leak with the engine running.
Lastly, get some leak detector dye and a black light. Pour in the dye and run the engine for a minute or two. Then check for leaks with the black light. If nothing shows, run it for 5 minutes.
Have you dropped the pan at all? Check the bolts on the front of the pan.
