Comments: Hidden Valley Pond has been stocked with bluegill and produces nice-sized fish from time to time. The City of Cottage Grove sponsors a popular fishing clinic each year in June. In 2012 the fishing pier was removed for modifications and a new pier is anticipated to be installed for the 2014 fishing season.
