Cut out the old canes and wind the new canes into your fence or whatever support you are using.

I cut the new canes to about my eye level, and cut the old canes to the ground (either in fall or early spring). I've tried the winding thing, but found it awkward to harvest. I get tons of berries and my berry patch looks neater (to me). I do know the commercial growers in my area do that winding thing. Just saying if won't adversely affect your harvest if you opt to keep next year's canes shorter. Personal preference.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
