First pruning of new black raspberry plants

I live in Washington State and I planted 2 bare root black rasperries in late winter. They produced about a pint of fruit. It is now September and what I read says not to prune them back the first year. The canes are about 10 ft long and a bit unruly. Do I need to wait until next year to prune them? Should I prune in late winter/early spring coming up or wait another 12 months?
