Default Do I need a larger trellis?

2nd year growing. My Cascade and Centennial are going gang busters, and have reaced vertical gowth above my 6 ft support trellis.

I dont have any real option for further vertical growth support.

My question is:

Can I let them fall back to the trellis and regrow back up it? What about training it to a nearby fence.

Would like this not to compromse my field too much.

You can let them fall back down for sure... or you could do a tie off to a nearby post or something and train them to go horizontally instead of vertically.

They will follow the sun usually.
