As others have said, although the regs are not set yet for this season (DFG meeting August 25th in Santa Barbara will provide those answers) - the regs on spinning wing dekes in the past several years did allow wind powered spinning wing decoys all year...and motorized as of Dec 1st.
As far as do they work well and when - that will vary with the area and birds you are hunting. I know users of the various spinners that have had good luck through out the season...and others that have found their usefulness subside as the season wears on.
As far as using them for geese - I'd stick with flags ad good Full Body dekes and calling. Spinners don’t seem to help the guys I know that hunt geese hard. They don't use them on geese.
