Default 2nd year hop problem ?

I am new to hop growing and only have a 2nd year cascade and a few I planted this year.
my ? problem is that on my second year cascade is growing great 16 ft tall or so but where ever there is a cone start or whatever its called in the bottom 7-8 ft of the plant has turned brown and is there dead or are going to fall off and have is I just pulled on them slightly the ones that are higher look like they might do this as well not sure
