Mooring can I keep my boat on its own mooring

I have a question,
I sail on Lake Champlain, and am considering moving up to a 26' sailboat. Mooring/slip fee minimums are pretty expensive for my tastes and so I am wondering, Is there any reason why I can't just set anchor regularly in some bay or cove that I like? I was even thinking of making a mooring out of concrete and dropping somewhere (maybe right near the mooring field of an expensive yacht club)? Are there any laws or anything prohibiting this? Who if anyone would I have to notify if I were anchored there all season?
Thanks for your thoughts.
(Oh and if you have other mooring suggestions for Lake Champlain feel free to let me know).
