I don't know if it's legal or not but don't know why one would want to. Laguna is not very protected and, of course this area is a windward shore.

A popular spot to anchor out during the day is Emerald Bay (I think, I'll double check) which is between Newport and Laguna. Again, not sure if it's legal overnight, still not very protected though.

I know you can anchor off Newport just south of the jetties (actually it's Corona Del Mar) You can stay there for 24 hours I believe as long as someone is on the boat. But if you're in Newport, might as well stay in the bay at the anchorage for free, I think they let you stay for five days.
